Worried Man Blues -
It Takes A Worried Man To Sing A Worried Song

Traditional - Woody Guthrie

I went across the river, I lay down to sleep (2)
And I woke up, had shackles on my feet

   It takes a worried man to sing a worried song (2)
   I’m worried now, but I won’t be worried long

Twenty-one links of chains around my leg (2)
And on each link’s an initial of my name

I asked that judge: what’s gonna be my fine? (2)
Twenty-one years on the Rocky Mountain line

That train pulled out, twenty-one coaches long (2)
The woman I love is on that train and gone

Twenty-one years to pay my awful crime (2)
Twenty-one years, and I’ve still got ninety-nine
