(1927) Richard Jones Trouble in mind, I'm blue But I won't be blue always, 'Cause the sun's gonna shine In my backdoor some day. I'm all alone at midnight And my lamp is burnin' low Ain't never had so much Trouble in my life before. Trouble in mind, that's true I have almost lost my mind, Life ain't worth livin, Sometimes I feel like dyin'. Goin' down to the river Gonna take my ol' rockin' chair And if the blues don't leave me I'll rock away from there. You been a hard-hearted mama Great God! You been unkind Gonna be a cold, cold papa Cause you to lose your mind. I'm gonna lay my head down On some lonesome railroad line And let the two nineteen Pacify my mind. Well it's trouble, oh trouble Trouble on my worried mind, When you see me laughin' I'm laughin' just to keep from cryin'.
