to Jimmie Davis, the idea for “Shackles And Chains” came from an old story
he had been told many years before.
to Governor Davis, “The story was about the days back when they supposedly
used stones for pillows but I’m not sure they ever really did that. But
that’s where I got the idea for the song anyway.”
And Chains” has been recorded dozens of times by dozens of artists but only
one version ever made the country music charts.
song peaked at # 95 hit for The Osborne Brothers and Mac Wiseman in 1979 on CMH
