Johnny Cash - I'm Free From the Chain Gang Now Lyrics

I got rid of the shackles that bound me and the guards that we're always around me
There we're tears on the mail mother wrote me in jail
But I'm free from the chain gang now
All the years I was known and respected 'til one day I was wrongly suspected
I was shackled in chains in a cold freezin' rain but I'm free from the chain gang now

[Guitar]

All the years I was known by a number how I kept my mind is a wonder
But like a bird in a tree I got my liberty and I'm free from the chain gang now
I got rid of the shackles that bound me and the guards that we're always around me
There we're tears on the mail mother sent me in jail
But I'm free from the chain gang now
There we're tears on the mail mother wrote me in jail
But I'm free from the chain gang now
