Trouble in mind
 
 
1965 May 19-20: New York
Trouble in mind I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
Cos the sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday

Trouble in mind I'm slow
My poor heart is beating so slow
I never had so much trouble
In my life before yeah

I'm going down to the river
Gonna get me a rocking chair
If the Lord don't help me
I'm gonna rock away from here

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

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

Yeah I'm going down to the river
Gonna get me a rocking chair
If the Lord don't help me
I'm gonna rock away from here

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

Yeah the sun's gonna shine
My back door someday
Wow sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday
