Ball and Chain was written by Tammi Lynn Kidd and Paul Kennerley and performed by Rayna Jaymes and Luke Wheeler. On the show, this song was written by Gunnar Scott and Scarlett O'Connor.

They perform it in the Season Two episodes Hanky Panky Woman, Just for What I Am, We've Got Things to Do and On the Other Hand. They first hear it when Gunnar Scott and Scarlett O'Connor are singing it by the hotel's poolside in the episode Hanky Panky Woman and Luke Wheeler also performs it with Deacon Claybourne and Will Lexington in the Season Three episode First to Have A Second Chance.

Luke and Rayna's version is included on The Music of Nashville (Season 2, Volume 1).


Lyrics

Rayna:
I get along without you baby
if I only could
There ain't a thing about you baby
that does me any good
But still you try to keep me here
well is that just your pride
Everyday with you is like a
roller coaster ride

Rayna and Luke:
It's so complicated
it's driving me insane
It's just a ball and chain
Just a ball and chain

Luke:
Listen here

Ain't no doubt about it baby
you push me away
Every time I turn my back
your begging me to stay
Then you leave me hanging on
I don't know where you're at
If I knew you were really gone
Well I could handle that

Rayna and Luke:
It's so complicated
it's driving me insane
It's just a ball and chain
Just a ball and chain
Just a ball and chain

Rayna and Luke:
I've tried all things I could to
get me off the hook
But still I keep on falling for
every single trick in the book
yeah
All those little games you play babe
used to be fun
Baby we were flying higher
close to the sun

Luke:
But you're tearing me apart now
All the good is gone

Rayna and Luke:
There's a shadow hanging over us
What was right is wrong

It's so complicated,
it's driving me insane
It's just a ball and chain

Luke:
Just a ball and chain

Rayna and Luke:
Just a ball and chain
Just a ball and chain
Just a ball and chain
