Trouble in Mind

Listen (MP3)
Listen (RealAudio)

Trouble in mind, babe, I'm blue,
But I won't be blue always
Yes, the sun gonna shine,
In my back door someday

I went out to Wolf Trap to see a concert
I couldn’t believe the lousy seats we got
And we parked our car a mile away
And now I forget which lot

It’ll take me an hour, to find my car
And two hours to reach the highway
And the show is just A Prairie Home Companion
I thought it was Michael Buble

I'm goin' down, down to Wolf Trap
I'm gonna sit up on the lawn
Lord, I’m gonna sit up there and howl
Until the blues are gone

'Cause I'm trouble in mind, I'm blue,
But I won't be blue always
Yes, the sun gonna shine,
In my back door someday

I'm gonna lay, lay on the hillside
And howl up at the sky
Cause there’s nothing so beautiful,
As when the wolves all cry

I wish it were Glee, or Lady Gaga
Or American Idol with Simon Cowell
And I am so bummed out, baby
I am simply going to howl.

I'm trouble in mind, I'm blue,
But I won't be blue always
Yes, the sun gonna shine,
In my back door someday
