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

Submitted by: Tom Rivers

(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)
