Troubles Up and Down the Road
by Blue Highway



Troubles up and down the road, and trials all the way around
Never knew what trouble was till my darling threw me down

If ever I meet that girl again, our troubles will all be oer
I’ll steal her out away from home; We will sail for some foreign shore

When my worldly trials are over and my last goodbye I’ve said
Bury me near my darling’s doorstep where the roses bloom and fade

My pockets are all empty like they’ve often been before;
If I ever reach my home again, I’ll walk these ties no more

The cheapest thing I ever done was sleepin’ out among the pines
The hardest thing I ever tried was keeping your loving off my mind

Have never worked for pleasure, peace on earth I cannot find
The only thing I surely own is a worried and troubled mind

Troubles up and down the road, and trials all the way around
Never knew what trouble was till my darling threw me down
