Great song, both in the original, and in Linda Ronstadt's cover version. It's been years since I heard it, but I'll try the lyrics from memory. I'll also plant chords in the lyrics in the first verse, as close as possible to where they belong, in the key of G (hope this comes out as legible as it is while typing):

(C)Save (D)me, (B)free (Em)me from (C)my (D)heart this time(G)
The (C)train's (D)gone (B)down the (Em)track, and (C)I've (D)stayed behind(G)
(D)Nothing can (Dsus4)save me from (D)this ball and chain(Dsus4)
I've (D)made up my (Dsus4)mind I would (Em)leave (D)to-(C)day
But you're (D)keeping me (D with C bass)going, I (G)know it's in-(D)sane
'Cause I (Am)love you and (D)lose a-(G)gain

Well the heart calls, and the mind obeys
I knows better than me baby
But if I hold on for one more day
Maybe you'll be true (?)
Nothing can save me from this ball and chain
I've made up my mind I would leave today
But you're keeping me going, I know it's insane
'Cause I love you and lose again

I don't know how to do this "right," but I'm hoping you can make sense out of this. Good luck.

Good luck is right! One of these days I'll learn to do this chord/lyric thing properly. In the mean time, if you're familiar with the song and patient with my text, you may be able to make sense of it. Good thing you didn't ask me to transcribe Waddy Wachtel's singing Les Paul line from Linda's recording -- wouldn't have been pretty.
