Chain of Fools
Aretha Franklin Lyrics


Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

For five long years
I thought you were my man
But I found out
I'm just a link in your chain

You got me where you want me
I ain't nothin' but your fool
Ya treated me mean
Oh you treated me cruel

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

Every chain, has got a weak link
I might be weak yeah
But I'll give you strength
Oh, hey

You told me to leave you alone
My father said, "Come on home"
My doctor said, "Take it easy"
Oh but your lovin' is much too strong
I'm added to your

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

One of these mornings
The chain is gonna break
But up until the day
I'm gonna take all I can take, oh hey

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

Chain, chain, chai-i-in
Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chai-i-in
Chain of fools

I love this version rip aretha franklin

Dark Pone

She's not dead, she is now playing for much bigger choirs.

Jacob Schweitzer

This is easily my favourite Aretha song, especially this 'unedited' one, really just an extended version. She will forever be the Queen of Soul Music, and a Detroit and Michigan Legend. I have lived in the Detroit Metro area my entire life, pretty much everyone has been talking about her, she will be greatly missed, but also celebrated by music lovers worldwide in perpetuity. Rest in Peace, Aretha. Thank you so much for everything you contributed to humanity!

Aretha Franklin Whitney Houston

This version should've been on the original album

Aretha Franklin Whitney Houston

@Tony Alessi What I meant was it should've been on the 1968 album release, I know it's on the cd release from the 90s as I have that.
