Trad. Arrangement by Tar and Rosin


Trouble, Oh trouble, it's trouble all the time
If trouble don't kill me, I'll live a long, long time

Chorus: Ain't that trouble in mind x4

My mammy told me something, my pappy told me more
If ever I get married in this life, bring trouble through that door

My mammy told me something and it is sure to pass
A drinking and a gambling will be my ruin at last

My pappy told me something and it will surely come
I'll be in the penitentiary afore I'm twenty one

Well sometimes I have money, and sometimes I have none
When I'm out a gambling my money's soon all gone

Sometime I will have a dram, and sometimes I'll have two
When I'm on a drinking spree, no telling what I'll do

Next time I get married, it ain't goin' be for riches
Going to marry me a girl about eight feet tall
So she can't wear my britches
