Lyrics
On this long and lonesome journey
I'm going
But sweet little darlin'
Don't you cry

In shackles and chains they will take me
To the prison till the day that I die

And each night thru the bars
I will gaze at the stars
My dreams dear of you
Will be in vain

This piece of stone I use for my pillow
While I'm sleeping in my shackles and chains

So put your arms thru these bars once more baby
I want to kiss those sweet lips I love best
In my sorrow they've been consolation
And in saddness my haven of rest

And each night thru the bars
I will gaze at these stars
And my dreams dear of you
They'll be in vain

This piece of stone I had to use for my pillow
While I'm sleeping in my shackles and chains
