Worried Man Blues
Written by A. P. Carter


Chords

Song

chorus:

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.

1.

I went across the river and I laid down to sleep, x3
When I woke up, there were shackles on my feet.

2.

Around each leg were twenty one links of chain, x3
And on each link, the initials of my name.

3.

I asked the judge what’s gonna be my fine, x3
Twenty one years on the Rocky Mountain Line.

4.

If anyone should ask you who composed this song, x3
Say it was me and I sing it all day long.
