Trouble Done Bore Me Down

This song is by Barbecue Bob and appears on the compilation album Barbecue Bob, Vol. 2 (1928-1929) (1991).

Trouble done bore me down, aw, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

One funny time I was happy and gay
But now that time has passed away

Trouble done bore me down, oh, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

Now, trouble done bore me down, trouble done bore me down
Here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

My gal run off with another man
Catch me now, and just see if you can

Trouble done bore me down, oh, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

I used to skin my liquor so easy and nice
Liquor's rotten now, oh, what a price!

Trouble done bore me down, aw, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

Fix up your gal with a nice little flat
Along come another man, leave you just like that

Trouble done bore me down, aw, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

Up before the judge, your eyes full of tears
For beating up your gal, you got twenty-five years

Trouble done bore me down, aw, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

You got a lifetime, you don't need no more
The judge drop by, you get four or five more

Trouble done bore me down, aw, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

Now, trouble done bore me down, aw, trouble done bore me down
But here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down

All that is left for me to do
Is work just like a fool
Then maybe I'll get through

But trouble done bore me down, aw, trouble done bore me down
And here I sit, a-mourning, trouble done bore me down
