One more
Let's go boys

Trouble in mind
I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
Cos the sun's gonna shine
My back door someday

Trouble in mind
It's true
I have almost lost my mind
Never had so much trouble
In my life before

I'm gonna lay my head
On some lonesome railroad line
Let the two nineteen train
Ease my troubled mind

Trouble in mind
I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
Cos the sun's gonna
Shine my back door someday

I'm gonna lay lay my head
On some lonesome railroad line
Let the two nineteen train
Ease my troubled mind

Say trouble in mind
I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
Cos the sun's gonna
Shine my back door someday

I'm gonna lay oh my head
On some lonesome railroad line
Let the two nineteen train
Ease my troubled mind

Trouble in mind
Yes I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
Cos the sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday

Cos the sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday
Cos the sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday

Cos the sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday oh boy
Cos the sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday
