Work Song (Live) (2000 Digital Remaster) (Live) - Bobby Darin (搏比·達林)

Breakin' up these rocks on-a chain gang

 

Breakin' rocks and servin' my time

 

Breakin' up these rocks on-a chain gang

 

‘cause I been convicted of a crime.

 

Hold it steady right there while I hit it … huh!

Oh, reckon that ought-a get it

Been workin' … I been workin'

But, I got me so terrible long to go.

 

I been convicted of the crime, Lord, of needin'

 

Crime of bein' hungry and poor

 

Had-a leave some grocery man bleedin'

 

When he found me robbin' his store.

 

Hold it steady right there while I hit it … huh!

 

Oh, reckon that ought-a get it

 

Been workin' … I been workin'

 

But, I got me so terrible long to go.

 

Heard a judge say, “Five years labor …

To the chain gang you got-a go.”

Heard a judge say, “Five years labor.”

Heard my woman scream, “Lordy, no!”

Hold it steady right there while I hit it … huh!

Oh, reckon that ought-a get it

 

Been workin' … I been workin'

But, I got me so terrible long to go.

 

Captain told me, “You got to watch your behavior …

If you're gonna work just like a natural born man.”

I told the captain, “You'd be meetin' your Savior …

You come on close to this hammer in my hand.”

Hold him steady right there while I hit him … huh!

 

Oh, reckon that ought-a get him

 

Been workin' … I been workin'

But, I got me so terrible long to go.

I wanna see my sweet, honey baby

 

I got to break these chains off and run

 

I wanna lay my head where it's shady

Lord knows it's hot in this sun.

Hold it steady right there while I hit it … huh!

 

Oh, reckon that ought-a get it

 

Been workin' … I been workin'

 

But, I got me so terrible long to go …

See I been workin' … I been workin' …

 

But, I got me so terrible long to go …

 

You know I got me so terrible long to go …

 

Lord … I got me so damn long to go!
