"Ball And Chain" as written by and Paul/barfield Young....
You toss me aside
You throw me away
In the garbage can
Is where I will play
They said everyday
They took 'em away
They said I'm not for you

Listen closely
To my pain
Mommy, Daddy
Am I a ball and chain

When you were a child
They called you a whore
So you did not want me anymore
They said your too young
And I'm in the way
They said I'm not for you

Listen closely
To my pain
Mommy, Daddy
Am I a ball and chain

BALL AND CHAIN (x4)

Listen closely
To my pain
Mommy, Daddy
Am I a ball and chain

Listen closely
To my pain
Mommy, Daddy
Am I a ball and chain

BALL AND CHAIN (x4)

    General CommentThis too is a song about abortion, just from the perspective of the baby. This also talks about a big reason for abortions in young mothers: pressure. Pressure from their parents and pressure from their peers and boyfriends. If anyone is considering an abortion or you know someone that is, go to abortiontv.com. There is some good information there. There are alot of pictures there not intended for children under 12.
