Worried Man Blues
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long

I went across the river and I lay down to sleep
I went across the river and I lay down to sleep
When I woke up, there were shackles on my feet

Twenty-nine links of chain around my leg
Twenty-nine links of chain around my leg
And on each link an initial of my name

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long

I asked the judge what might be my fine
I asked the judge what might be my fine
Twenty-one years on that RC mountain line

The train arrived sixteen coaches long
The train arrived sixteen coaches long
A girl I love is on that train and gone

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long

If anyone asks you who composed this song
If anyone asks you who composed this song
Tell me it was I and I sing it all day long

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
