New Lyrics “Ball and Chain”

“Ball and Chain”
Written by Josh Damigo

I met a girl,
I think I lost my mind
I met a girl
Now I’m with her all the time

My friends, they won’t let me be
Say she’s got her claws in me
But I don’t see it that way
I don’t see it that way

She’s cool water on a July day
She’s the keys I need to get away
I’m so happy, I’ve never been so free

She’s so much better than all my dreams
Lying next to her, I don’t wanna sleep
Yeah she don’t look like no ball and chain to me

I met a girl,
And her hands are just my size
I met a girl,
And now she’s with me all the time

My friends just point and laugh
They say, “Boy, she’s got you trapped”
But I don’t see it that way
I don’t see it that way


They all say that this will pass
Love was never meant to last
I may need, I may need new friends

Cause I love when she says my name
Kisses her Chapstick all over my face
Yeah I’ve never, I’ve never been so free



About Josh Damigo

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his homemade EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident, Damigo retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for “Best Acoustic” and “Best Local Recording,” opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, Eric Hutchinson, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third release, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Damigo spent much of year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his latest album, "Just Give Me a Call", available now, on Randm Records. From the up-tempo single, “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
