Swinging The Chain Lyrics

Artist: Black Sabbath
Album: Never Say Die

It's against my uniform
To be a civil judge
All the songs are history now
`Bout rock stars and their grudge
Let us cast our minds back
To thirty years or more
You took up all the vandals
Will Hitler beat `em all?

And we're sad and sorry
Really sorry that it happened that way
Yes we're sad and sorry
But why'd you have to treat us that way?

Compare ourselves with others
And cover them in sin
Oh, God what a terrible
A terrible state we're in
There must be some way out of here
A comprimise that's right
If we cannot work it out
We're gonna have to fight

Yes we're sad and sorry
Really sorry that it happened that way
Yes we're sad and sorry
We cannot go on in those days

I'm talking about my brothers
Yeah, I'm talking `bout sisters as well
I wish you good luck
Good luck!

Oh, but the world's still on fire
Chain the hope you take on, liar
This fire
We're on fire, we're on fire, yeah...

"And we're sad and sorry
Really sorry that it happened that way
Yes we're sad and sorry
But why'd you have to treat us that way?"

Third line should say:
"Yes we're so, so sorry"

Also note: The only Ozzy era song, NOT sung by Ozzy. Sung by Bill Ward, the drummer.

Retract last sentence. Bill Ward also sang "It's Alright" on the Technical Ecstasy album.

I believe that "swinging the chain" was sung by Dave Walker, the perposed, yet never realized, new Sabbath frontman.

Both of you guys are wrong. This song is sung by Bill Ward. He also sang Solitude (Master's of Reality) and It's Alright (Thechnical Ecstasy).

Retract my statement. But Ward did sing Solitude too.

I played harmonica on Swinging the Chain, and I can confirm that Bill took the vocal.

As far as I know, Ozzy sang Solitude.
