Well it takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
Well it takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I’m worried now but I won’t be worried long

Well I went down to the river I lay down to sleep
I went down to the river to lay me down to sleep
Well I went down to the river I lay down to sleep
When I woke up there were shackles on my feet

So it takes a worried man to sing a worried song…

[ guitar ]
This train I ride is twenty one coaches long
This train I ride is twenty one coaches long
This train I ride is twenty one coaches long
That woman I love she’s on that train and gone

That why I’m a worried man to sing a worried song…
So it takes a worried man to sing a worried song…
