Trouble  4:16

from Brother Sun

Trouble, I see you coming,
I'd like to stay out of your way.
You don't care nothing
about such a beautiful day.
When the sky is so blue you get lost in the looking
and the leaves are a golden flame.
Trouble, I see you coming
and I'm right back at the bottom again.

Sometimes, it's where your shoes go,
Sometimes, it's in your head.
ometimes, it's in your wallet,
Sometimes, it's in your bed.
When the sky is so blue you get lost in the looking
and  you leave these earthly chains,
Trouble, I see you coming
and I'm right back at the bottom again.  That's right,
I'm right back at the bottom again.  

Way down to the bottom
Way down. Can't see the top  
Way down to the bottom
Rise up, rise up, rise up.

It's a long way to Richmond, Virginia.
It's been a long time since I've been.
Strange, something so far from the present
can rise right through your skin.
When  you hide from yourself you get lost in the looking
and your life is an endless maze.
Trouble, I see  you coming,
gonna rise up over you some day, that's right,
gonna rise up over you some day.
