A Worried Man

I’m a worried [D] man
With a worried [G] mind
Worried [A] that I’ll never [G] find
Any [D] peace in this [G] life
Well, I’m a worried [D] man
With a worried [G] mind

Got a wife ahead
And one at home
One says she loves me, the other don’t
But I don’t ever like to be alone
Got a wife ahead
And one at home

If you see my children
Tell ‘em not to complain
I’ll be home bout any day
Then I swear I’ll learn their names
If you see my children
Tell ‘em not to complain

I look for work
But there’s none to be found
I walk all over this old town
In every bar, I ask around
I look for work
But there’s none to be found

I’ll have a drink
Every now and then
One for the road and another again
I never knew we were such good friends
I’ll have a drink
Every now and then

I pray to god almost every night
Hope that he might make it right
Never meant to sell my eternal soul
For such a little pot of gold
I pray to god almost every night
Hope that he might make it right
