Big Mama Thornton - Ball & Chain (1970)

with Buddy Guy's Blues Band.

I was doubting if i should upload it, because it only has one audio channel. But it's just too good not to, really. Absolutely beautiful.
Enjoy.


"S-sittin' by my window,
Big Mama was sittin' down lookin' at da rain.
Hey, hey! S-sitting by my window, baby,
Oh-oh-oh, I was lookin' out at da rain.
You know somethin' struck me, honey.
Grabbed a-hol'ta me like a ball 'n' chain.

I said, oh-oh-oh, baby,
Why-eye you wanna do dese ol' mean things to me?
I said, oh-oh, hoh-oh-oh-ohoh, now honey, ha-ho, yeh,
Why, why did you wanna do dese ol' mean thing' t'me?
Because I know I love you, baby,
An' I'm so sick 'n' tire' of bein' in misery.
Oh, Lord, play your soul, baby.

Know my love for ya,
Hol's on like a ball 'n' chain.
Oh-ooo-oo-ooo, baby, ha-ha,
My love hol's on like a ball 'n' chain.
Ya know I don' mean no harm, honey,
But Big Mama don't wanna go insane.

Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen!

I say, oh-oh, oh-oh, baby,
Why-eye-eye-eye, ever'thing ever happen to me?
I say, ahhhhh-ah, oh, ba-bay-ay-ayay,

I know my love gonna las' forevah,
Listen! Woh-oh-oh-ohoh, wo-oh-oh-ohoh,
Oh-oh, yeah, a-for eternity.

Ball 'n' chain, turn me loo-ooo-oose."
