"Chain Gang" as written by and Sam Cooke....
[Chorus]
Oh don't you know
That's the sound of the men
Workin' on the chain gang
Oh don't you know
That's the sound of the men
Workin' on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
'Til the sun's comin' down
Workin' on the highways and byways
And wearin' a frown
I hear them moanin' their lives away
Then you hear somebody say

[Chorus]

Oh I work so..
I work so hard
To see my woman
Who I love so dear
But I, I've gotta work right here

[Chorus]

My my my my my my my my my my
My work is so hard
Give me water
I'm thirsty

Oh I, oh my work is so hard
You hear them moanin' their lives away
Then you hear somebody say

[Chorus]

[Repeat: x2]
I don't want to work on that gang
