Folk Song Of The Week – Worried Man Blues: Frailing Banjo Lesson

Worried Man Blues is a great song and since I just recorded the song for our new CD, I thought it would make a great addition for the Folk Song Of The Week. It’s a really good song to play in frailing banjo or clawhammer.

Play along and have fun with it. Enjoy yourself while you play a happy melody with worrisome lyrics.

WORRIED MAN BLUES

It [G]takes a worried man to sing a worried song

It [C]takes a worried man to sing a worried [G]song

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song

I’m worried [D7]now, but I won’t be worried [G]long

 

I went across the river and I lay down to sleep
Went across the river and I lay down to sleep
Went across the river and I lay down to sleep
When I woke up, put the shackles on my feet

Twenty-nine links of chain around my leg
Twenty-nine links of chain around my leg
Twenty-nine links of chain around my leg
And on each link was the initial of my name

I asked the judge, what might be my fine
I asked the judge, what might be my fine
I asked the judge, what might be my fine
Twenty-one years on the Rocky Mountain Line
