Subject: So You Think You've Got Troubles; by Marvin Rainwater; Grandpa Jones

     

Hi Y'all,

Sheila Allen asked for a song her dad sang to her - "Build me a bar in the 
back of my car and drive myself to drink.'  I don't know if this is it, but 
the tag fits that line.  I believe Marvin Rainwater recorded this, and 
perhaps Grandpa Jones.  If anyone needs help with the Nashville Numbering 
System, see my explanation (and others) at 
Cowpie/Resources/Lessons/NashvilleNumberSystem3.  If this doesn't do it, 
email me at tipper194@juno.com.

[If this is the right song, Sheila, I have stumbled on some more words that 
work with it.  Let me know if you'd like them.]

SO YOU THINK YOUVE GOT  TROUBLES

 

Recorded by:  Marvin Rainwater; Grandpa Jones

(Chorus)

 

(Sing) SO YOU THINK YOUVE GOT  TROUBLES, 

 

THE MORE YOU TRY THE WORSE THEY  GET

 

SO YOU THINK YOUVE GOT  TROUBLES

 

WELL, BROTHER, YOU AINT SEEN  NOTHIN YET

 

(Verse 1)

 

(Recite) NOW MY CAR SOUNDS LIKE AN  OLD TIN CAN

 

MY WIFE RAN OFF WITH ANOTHER  MAN

 

I SPRAINED THE MUSCLE IN MY  FISHIN HAND

 

AND MY INCOME TAX IS DUE

 

I LOST MY MONEY IN A POKER  GAME

 

AND NOW MY LEFT LEGS  GOIN LAME

 

MY BROTHER ASKED ME IF ID  CHANGE MY NAME

 

AND I GUESS THATS WHAT  ILL DO

 

(Verse 2)

 

(Recite) MY DOCTOR TOLD ME NOT TO  SMOKE

 

DRINK NOTHIN STRONGER THAN A  COKE

 

I CANT EVEN LISTEN TO A DIRTY  JOKE

 

CAUSE ILL LAUGH AND  STRAIN MY HEART

 

IVE HAD EVERY AILMENT KNOWN TO  MAN

 

FROM AFRICAN MUMPS TO DISHPAN  HANDS

 

I LOST EVERY RACE THAT I EVER  RAN

 

I NEVER EVEN HAD A START

 

(Verse 3)

 

(Recite) NOW SOME PEOPLE CALL ME A  PESSIMIST

 

THEY SAY I OUGHTA MAKE THE BEST OF  THIS

 

WELL MAYBE I AM A  PESSIMIST

 

THATS ONE THING I  WOULDNT KNOW

 

BUT ONE THING I DO KNOW, ILL  TELL YOU RIGHT NOW

 

IM MILKIN THE WRONG END  OF THIS HERE COW

 

THERES TOO MANY WRINKLES IN  THIS BOYS BROW

 

AND THATS STUFFS JUST  GOTTA GO.

 

(Tag)

 

(Recite) GONNA PUT A BAR IN THE TRUNK OF MY CAR AND  DRIVE MYSELF TO DRINK.

 

(Chorus)

 

         1          1          1         1

 

         1          1          5         5

 

         1          1          4         4

 

         1          5          1         1

 

(Verses)

 

         1          1          4         4

 

         5          5          5         1
