Troubles My Middle Name

Cat. #0618 (MFH #649) - As sung by Boyce Davis, Lincloln, Arkansas on February 29, 1968

VERSE 1
I'm a peace lov'n man
Who don't like to fight
I need my eight hours
Of sleep every night
But it seems like trouble, yeh trouble
Is my middle name

VERSE 2
Walk into a bar
For one friendly drink
I'm with some mans wife
Jest as quick as a wink
And it seems like trouble, yeh trouble
Is my middle name
I even stopped my ramblin'
Settle down on a farm
But I coundn't hide from
John Laws long arm

VERSE 3
I guess I was born
With a spirit so frail
Th sheriffs will always
Be hard on my trail
An' it seemed like trouble, yeh trouble
Is my middle name
