Trouble in mind, I'm blue
Oh, but I won't be, blue always
Cause the sun's gonna shine
In my backdoor someday

I'm gonna lay my head down
On that cold, cold, track
Let that 2:19 train come and scratch my back

Iím going down to the river
Iím going to bring back my rocking chair
And if the blues come and get me
Iím gonna rock away from here

Iím all alone around midnight
My life is burning low
Iíve never had so much trouble
In my mind before

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
Oh, but I won't be, blue always
The sun's gonna shine
On my backdoor someday

From what I could find, it looks this one had it's start in the 1920's, and has had quite a few people cover it through the years, including none other than John Gorka. Eight-bar blues, with a JG twist, what's not to like? Why do I think that JG would have a smirk on his face singing about the sun shining in his backdoor?...

Good pick by John. Blues tinged with a bit of optimism. Sounds perfect.

Merry Christmas to all you Christmasers, happy holidays to all! It's been a great year for Gorka fans!
