Bobby Bare — Worried Man Blues lyrics

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
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 laid me down to sleep
I went across the river laid me down to sleep
I went across the river laid me down to sleep
When I woke up I had shackles on my feet
Don't you know it takes a worried man...

I asked that judge what's gonna be my fine
I asked that judge what's gonna be my fine
I asked that judge what's gonna be my fine
Twenty one years on the Rocky Mountain Line
Oh it takes a worried man...

Well the train I ride it's twenty one coaches long
The train I ride is twenty one coaches long
The train I ride is twenty one coaches long
The woman I love she's on that train and gone
Oh it takes a worried man...
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
