Capo 5th Fret

G
I was down at the dump
Cadd9
Looking for crumbs
       G                            D
And what did I suddenly see
      G
Out there on the edge
     Cadd9
As certain as death
G                 D/F#            G
Trouble came looking for me

With the stand of a man
You might understand
He sang like a bird to me
I was ready to drop
So I turned my guard off
And let trouble come looking for me

Cadd9
Old friends new friends
G
Strangers and family
Cadd9
Keep a watch out
      Am                          D
For things you never can see

I was doing my best
For to keep up with the rest
When trouble came looking for me

I put a roof on my head
I got a wife and was blessed
To start my own family

I wanted for nothing
But the bank said 'he're have something'
That's when trouble came looking for me

I asked for some time
Just a couple of weeks
To pay up and get back on my feet
But the man took my keys and my house and my lease
When Trouble came looking for me

Old friends new friends
Strangers and family
Don't just say yes
When somebody tells you it's free

I was just giving my kids
The best of all things
When trouble came looking for me

Now trouble comes calling
In so many ways
It can flatter or lie and deceive
I was doing my damnedest
To keep away from all that badness
But trouble came looking for me

Time and again
I'd say never again
Would I gamble on what I can't see
Nor will I take money from poor folks around me
When trouble came looking for me

Old friends new friends
Strangers and family
I'm every old fool
I worried I ever might be

I couldn't survive
By just staying alive
When trouble came looking for me
