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

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

Don't you know
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

I asked that judge, what's gonna be my fine?
I asked that judge, what's gonna be my fine?
I asked that judge, what's gonna be my fine?
Twenty one years on the Rocky Mountain line

Oh, 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

Well the train I ride, it's twenty one coaches long
The train I ride is twenty one coaches long
The train I ride is twenty one coaches long
The woman I love she's on that train and gone

Oh, 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

I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
