Ball Anchor and Chain - Matthews
From the album ‘Lies and Alibi’s’ Pat Shaw and Julie Matthews

 

Ball, anchor and chain
These memories of you remain
Hurt, anger and pain
The lipstick on your collar is a cheaters stain
So when you’re spreading your love around
Just remember who taught you how for a ball, anchor and chain

Lies nothing but lies
For every one you tell some feeling dies
Lies and alibis
What comes out of your mouth betrays your eyes
Well I’m trading this love we had
For what it’s worth you can take it back
With this ball, anchor and chain

Anchor and chain, anchor and chain
Anchor and chain, this ball this anchor and this chain

Miles of rubber and road
I’m gonna drive all night alone
Open the throttle and roll
Till the tread marks on my tyres are all but worn
Well I’m trading this love we had
For the comfort of a single bed
And a ball, anchor and chain

Anchor and chain, anchor and chain
Anchor and chain, this ball this anchor and this.
This ball this anchor and this,
This ball this anchor and this chain
