Trouble No More

Words & Music:

Mckinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters)

Copyright 1955 (renewed 1983) Watertoons Music (BMI)


The Allman Brothers cover of this from "Eat A Peach" is fully transcribed (two guitars & bass) in Guitar World.


Basic Allman's riff  [used for intro, chorus & transitions]:







Don't care how long you go, I don't care how long you stay,


It's good kind treatment, bring you home someday.


Someday, baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me anymore.


Oh, give me trouble no more.


Now, you keep on bettin' that the dice won't pass.

Well, I know, and I know, whoa, you're livin' too fast.

Someday baby, you aint gonna trouble poor me, anymore.

Lord, no, baby.


Yeah, I'll tell everybody in my neighborhood

You're a kind little woman, but you don't do me no good.

But someday baby, you aint gonna trouble poor me, anymore.

Oh, no!




I know you're leaving, if you call that gone.

Oh, without my lovin', yeah, oh, you can't stay long.

Someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me, anymore.

Lord, no, baby.  Ah, yeah!


INSTRUMENTAL SOLO:  ["Well, goodbye, baby." at the end of solo]


Lord, take my hand.  I don't want no woman, no,

Who can't have no man.

But someday,y baby, you ain't gonna trouble poor me, anymore.

Lord, no, baby.  No trouble no more.  Oh, yeah...
