Troubled and I Don't Know Why

This song is by Joan Baez and Bob Dylan and appears on the compilation box set Rare, Live & Classic (1993) by Joan Baez.

I'm troubled and I don't know why
I'm troubled and I don't know why
Well, trouble on my mind
Is driving me blind
I'm troubled and I don't know why

Oh, what did the mornin' say?
What did the mornin' say?
When it rolled from the night
With a dark, dreary light
Saying, "Another old weary day"

I'm troubled and I don't know why
I'm troubled and I don't know why
The trouble on my mind
Is driving me blind
I'm troubled and I don't know why

What did the newspaper tell?
What did the newspaper tell?
Well, it rolled in the door
And it laid on the floor
Saying, "Things ain't going so well"

I'm troubled and I don't know why
I'm troubled and I don't know why
Well, the trouble on my mind
Is driving me blind
I'm troubled and I don't know why

What did the television squall?
What did the television squall?
Well, it roared an' it boomed
An' it bounced around the room
An' it never said nothin' at all

I'm troubled and I don't know why
I'm troubled and I don't know why
Well, the trouble on my mind
Is driving me blind
I'm troubled and I don't know why

What did the movie screen lecture?
What did the movie screen lecture?
Well, it heated an' it froze
An' it took off all its clothes
An' I left in the middle of the picture

I'm troubled and I don't know why
I'm troubled and I don't know why
Well, the trouble on my mind
Is driving me blind
I'm troubled and I don't know why

I'm troubled and I don't know why
I'm troubled and I don't know why
The trouble on my mind
Is driving me blind
I'm troubled and I don't know why
