"Pensavo che questa canzone avrebbe potuto non vedere mai la luce, ma ora che il presidente Obama ha allentato le sanzioni nei confronti di Cuba ho avuto un segno importante: si può andare oltre. Questo pezzo è stato realizzato in modo piuttosto laborioso, utilizzando il mio Yamaha E70 (più volte impiegato nelle lavorazioni dei dischi degli Who)".
Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain
Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain
That pretty piece of Cuba
Resolved to cause men pain
When you light up in Cuba
You won't feel the same again
Down in Guantanamo
Still waiting for the big cigars
Down in Guantanamo
Still waiting for the big cigars
Been a preacher promise
Still guilty with your charge
There's smoke in the forest
And the tumor is growing large
Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain
Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain
There's a long road to travel
For justice to make its crane
Let's bring down the gavel
Let the prisoner say his name
We still got the ball and chain
We still got the ball and chain
Let the prisoner say his name

Rinominata "Ball and Chain" la canzone è diventata il nuovo singolo degli Who che anticipa il nuovo album Detour

Detour
BALL AND CHAIN

Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain
Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain

That pretty piece of Cuba
Designed to cause men pain
Whoa, when you light up in Cuba
You won't feel the same again

Down in Guantanamo
Whew, still waiting for the big cigars
Down in Guantanamo
Whew, still waiting for the big cigars

Been a breach of promise
Still guilty with no charge
There’s smoke in the forest
And the tumour is getting large

Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain
Down in Guantanamo
We still got the ball and chain

There's a long road to travel
For justice to make its claim
So let's bring down the gavel
Let the prisoner say his name

Mmm, still waiting for the big cigars
Still waiting
Still waiting for the big cigars

Hey, still waiting for the big cigars
