I went across the river, and I lay down to sleep,
I went across the river, and I lay down to sleep,
I went across the river, and I lay down to sleep,
When I woke up with the chain on my feet.

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long.

Chain around my legs, twenty-nine links of chain
Chain around my legs, twenty-nine links of chain
Chain around my legs, twenty-nine links of chain
And on each link is initial of my name.

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long.

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."

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long.

The train arrived to the station, twenty-one coaches long,
The train arrived to the station, twenty-one coaches long,
The train arrived to the station, twenty-one coaches long,
The girl I love is on that train and gone.

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long.

If any one asks you who composed this song,
If any one asks you who composed this song,
If any one asks you who composed this song,
Tell him it was I and I sing it all day long…
