Lyrics

"3 Chains of Gold" (ver. 1)

I got three chains of gold
One for me, and one for you
And one for the future

I got three chains of gold
One for me, and one for you
And one for the future

That's what I'm talkin' about

I got three chains of gold
One for me, and one for you
And one for the future
