Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
Verse 2
I went across the river, and I lay down to sleep
I went across the river, and I lay down to sleep
When I woke up, had shackles on my feet
Verse 3
Twenty nine links of chain around my leg
Twenty nine links of chain around my leg
And on each link, the initial of my name
Verse 4
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
Verse 5
I asked that judge, tell me, what might be my fine
I asked that judge, tell me, what might be my fine
Twenty one years on the R C Mountain line
Verse 6
The train arrived, sixteen coaches long
The train arrived, sixteen coaches long
The girl I love is on that train and gone
Verse 7
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
Verse 8
If anyone asks you who composed this song
If anyone asks you who composed this song
Tell 'em t'was I, and I sing it all day long
Verse 9
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
It takes a worried man to sing worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
