I went across the river, I lay down to sleep
I went across the river, I lay down to sleep
When I woke up had shackles on my feet

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

Twenty-one links of chain around my leg
Twenty-one links of chain around my leg
And on each link is initial of a man

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

If anyone should asked you who composed this song
If anyone should asked you who composed this song
Just say it was I, I'll sing it all day long

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

Songwriters
A.p. Carter
