Hank Williams - Take These Chains From My Heart Lyrics




Take these chains from my heart and set me free
You've grown cold and no longer care for me
All my faith in you is gone but the heartaches linger on
Take these chains from my heart and set me free

Take these tears from my eyes and let me see
Just a spark of the love that used to be
If you love somebody new let me find a new love too
Take these chains from my heart and set me free

Give my heart just a word of sympathy
Be as fair to my heart as you can be
Then if you no longer care
For the love that's beating there
Take these chains from my heart and set me free

Take these chains from my heart and set me free
You've grown cold and no longer care for me
All my faith in you is gone but the heartaches linger on
Take these chains from my heart and set me free

    If it wasn't hank Johnny Horton or Cash my grandfather wouldn't listen to it he had a lot of there tapes and i would set in the car and would wear it out with him from the very moment i could understand to the day he died so glad my papaw introduce me to these grate artists and that what the bands are artists alot of people and (so called artists to day) will never understand keeping of rhythm and not having voice over and all that junk they use today

  26. Mickey Bowser

    YES YES PLEASE DO!!!!!PLEASE.

  27. Edgar Lincoln

    I have a copy of the 78, with a number of others by him and Webb Pierce. I took guitar lessons from Tilman Franks in Shreveport and he made all of his students appear in a program on stage at an exposition hall at the fair ground. I played and sang this song at age 9, pretty awful and I remember it with embarrassement but still love the song. Sorry

  28. Andrew Persaud

    Always a fan of Hank senior...one of his best songs...

  29. Barbara Manning

    one of his best

  33. packrat Buggs

    As far as I am concerned, this is the epitome of country music. Always will be, he is the best. His kid sucks.

    David P.

    I agree. I have always said that Hank Jr. Is not worthy of being a pimple on his daddy's butt!

  34. Josephine Oliver

    My 35yo son loves Hank singing.

  35. FRMONSIVAIS

    My father and I used to sing these songs when I was a little boy usually in his old 51 Chevy pickup. (No radio) He passed away two months ago. Bad between us. But good memories. We are Native Americans.

  36. Tim Lucas

    The lyrics hit really close to home. My wife left me after 8 years with no real explanation.

  37. BOB FELK

    boy howdy,..one of a kind

  38. Pablo Moya

    Excellent music

  39. Christopher Dibble

    they asked johnny cash who was his favorite singer, he said after george jones? he should of said after hank williams, that would be closer to the true answer, don'you think?

  40. Sonja Wood

    I grew up listening to him & the others that has passed on but not forgotten

  41. G Philip C

    I sang this wen ma ole dawg died.

  42. InanimateJon

    I don't think there's another artist's music that I can relate to like Hank.

  43. Barbara Manning

    listening to Hank carries me back so many years. I have never forgotten his music.

  44. Anthony Whittaker

    Yeah my dad and his friends would play his music and I would fall asleep by the wood stove everyone said he was Hank I miss those days

  45. Anthony Whittaker

    Now this is how music should be touch your heart and yet so good

  46. cyrus

    Hank is the best

  47. Donna Little

    My dad song..My dad sang this to my mom he was good..

  48. Carolyn Counts

    You couldn't tell the difference from Hank and my dad. He'd sit and sing for hours with his records. I just lost him March 2018 this year and hearing Hank is like hearing my dad. So much love and pain but the best there ever was! Never be another like Hank Williams Sr.!!

  49. Hootkat Dagger

    🎶 Of all the love songs that I’ve heard in my lifetime. Through many, many, years and, so very many different types of music. Not any of them speak to my heart the way this one does by this man.

  50. Ruth Fleming

    I made a CD when my dad was on his way and these chains set him free...

  51. Berit Samuelsson

  52. perry cox

    Take these chains from my heart and set me free
    You're grow cold and no longer care for me
    All my faith in you is gone but the heartaches linger on
    Take these chains from my heart and set me free
    Take these tears from my eyes and let me see
    Just a spark of the love that use to be
    If you love somebody new let me me find a new love too
    Take these chains from my heart and set me free
    Give my heart just a word of sympathy
    Be as fair to my heart as you can be
    Then if you no longer care for the love being there
    Take these chains from my heart and set me free
    Take these chains from my heart and set me free
    You're grow cold and no longer care for me
    All my faith in you is gone but the heartaches linger on
    Take these chains from my heart and set me free

  53. Billy Holloway

    All I can or have to say is he's the Original Outlaw God Bless You for that Hank

    Jessie Arabie ..every one of 'em!

  87. Jessica Hartman

    I read that this song was featured in an episode of "Roots". Which one? It doesn't sound familiar to me.

  88. The Mother Flower

    Raised on rock & roll and Hank's Greatest Hits (along with Creedence, the Stones, the Beatles etc) was simply part of it.  Bad ass rock & roll with a southern accent!  Anyway, this Bostonian boy is trying his best to keep the spirit alive... Check it out y'all:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MwcBvGLpV0

  89. Ann Slim

    charles j Puppy

    I HAVE TO AGREE KIM ,THESE PEOPLE WHO WAS RAISED ON GEORGE JONES AND OTHERS .HAVE TO UNDERSTAND 1 THING WITHOUT HANK THERE WOULD BE NO COUNTRY & WESTERN.EVEN THE GREAT JOHNNY CASH WAS INFLUENCED B Y HIM.

    Harold Williams

    @charles j Puppy You know I don't understand hi that Hank III sounds just like Hank Sr. He could write songs like his Grandpa did and have the country music people eating out of his hands..You should listen to him if you think I'm wrong judge for your self
