I've come of heart, baby, but now I'm cool
I didn't make it surely, playin' by the rules
I've come of heart, but now I'm fine
I'm checkin' trouble, sure movin' down the line
I've come of heart, but that's okay
'Cause trouble man don't get in my way

I've come of heart, baby
I've been for real with a trouble man
I'm gonna keep movin', I'm gonna roll to town
I've come of heart, come on, get down
There's only three things that's for sure
Taxes, death and trouble

Well this I know, baby
This I know, babe
Let the sweat through you
Should you think about me [unverified]
Get me singin', yeah, yeah

I've come of heart, I had to fight
Take care of my business [unverified] with all my might
I've come of heart, I had to win
Then start all over and then again
I've come of heart, but that's okay
'Cause trouble man don't get in my way

I've heard some places and I've seen some places
I've never had tensions, I give my directions
When people say, that's okay, they don't bother me
I'm ready to make it, don't care 'bout the weather
Don't care 'bout no trouble, got myself together
I've seen the kind of protection's all around me

I've come of heart, baby
I've been for real with the trouble man
I'm gonna keep movin', goin' goin' tight
I've come of heart, come on, get down
There's only three things for sure
Taxes, death and trouble

This I know, baby
This I know, baby
Hey now, let it sweat, baby, oh

I've come of heart, but now I'm cool
I didn't make it, baby, playin' by the rules
I've come of heart, but now I'm fine
I'm checkin' trouble, sure movin' down the line
I've come of heart, but that's okay
'Cause trouble man don't get in my way

Don't get in my way
Movin' down the line
