Trouble In Mind

Words & Music:

Richard M. Jones & Chippie Hill



           A    A7         E   E7

Trouble in mind, Lord, I'm blue,

      D9              D   D7

But I won't be blue always.


'Cause the sun's gonna shine

E  E7      F    E   A     E

On my back door someday


Look here, sweet mama, see what you've gone & done.

You've made me love you and now your regular man has come.




Well, you sure been a mean-hearted woman; you treated me unkind.

Now, I'm gonna be mean-hearted, too, and make you lose your mind.




Trouble, oh, trouble.  I got trouble on my mind.

When you see me laughin', I'm laughin' just to keep from cryin'.




I went down to the river, took along my rockin' chair.

And if the blues don't leave me, I'll rock along from there.




I'm gonna lay, lay my head on some sad, old railroad iron.

I'm gonna let that 2:19 just pacify my mind.
