Warren Zevon - Battleship Chains Lyrics




Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long and a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my lips to kiss nobody
Kiss nobody but you
I can't use my legs to chase nobody
Chase nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my arms to hold nobody
Hold nobody but you
Can't use my legs to chase nobody
Chase nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my arms to hold nobody
Hold nobody but you
Can't use my heart to love nobody
Love nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

  1. ignatius reilly

    Easily the hardest REM has ever rocked.

  2. ignatius reilly

    Rocks like a mofo!

  3. simon L

    I must get this album

  4. Hewin Price

    Zevon's voice belting out the blues -- I love it!

  5. yuki kinkin

    I love Warren Zevon's voice.
    and this song's lyrics is so cute.

  6. robert snyder

    Still pretty good on all punkish fronts!

  7. Charles Triplett

    growing magic mushrooms on the manure?

  8. Charles Triplett

    growing magic mushrooms on the bs

  9. John Wheeler

    hard to believe that peter,mike, and Bill from rem are all with Warren on this album...

  10. blotmaster1

    The Georgia Satellites version of this song is a far better rendition. Warren sounds flat and lacks emotion. Warren can sing much better than this.

    What does your disagreement have to do with bull manure?

    Nicholas Dwayne

    I bet you're a devil with the ladies.

    jamie wesson

    i agree and most that dont havent or couldnt be bothered to listen to the gs version

    David Evans

    nah, I beg to differ there! Just listened to the Georgia Satellites version and does not cut as deep as this version...this one rocks more. I think Zevon hits the notes fine though yeah the Satellites version tries to go for more of the melody, so I suppose that is where you may be coming from. I like this version better.

    Vo Dray

    If you can find it, try listening to the original version by The Woods. VERY hard to find and rather haunting.

  11. Greg Gaver

    "The record took as long to make as it takes to listen to."
