Song Lyrics

Well, I know my little ole baby
She gonna jump and shout
When that old train rolls up
I come walking out
And I got trouble

Well, my mama told my papa
Just before I’se born
You got a boy child comin’
Gonna be a rollin’ stone
I got trouble (x2)
I’m worried all in mind
And I just can’t be satisfied
I just can’t keep from cryin’

Well if you’ll be my little ole baby
I’m gone be your brown
Think the good lord made you
Angels brought you down
I have trouble (x2)
(I be all worried in mind)
And I just can’t be satisfied
I just can’t keep from cryin’

All in my sleep I
Hear my doorbell ring
Lookin’’ for my baby
Didn’t see a doggone thing
I got trouble (x2)
(I be all worried in mind)
And I just can’t be satisfied
I just can’t keep from cryin’

Well if you’ll be my little ole baby
I tell you what I’ll do
I’m gonna rob and steal now
And bring it back to you
I have trouble (x2)
(I be all worried in mind)
And I just can’t be satisfied
