unchained lyrics – johnny cash

i have been ungrateful,
i’ve been unwise.
restless from the cradle,
now i realize,
it’s so hard to see the rainbow,
through gl*sses dark as these.
maybe i’ll be able,
from now on, on my knees.

oh, i am weak.
oh, i know i am vain.
take this weight from me,
let my spirit be unchained.

old man swearin’ at the sidewalk,
i’m overcome.
seems that we’ve both forgotten,
forgotten to go home.
have i seen an angel?
oh, have i seen a ghost?
where’s that rock of ages,
when i need it most?

oh, i am weak.
oh, i know i am vain.
take this weight from me,
let my spirit be unchained.
