It takes a worried man to sing a worried song,
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 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, had shackles on my feet.

Twenty nine links of chain around my leg,
Twenty nine links of chain around my leg,
Twenty nine links of chain around my leg,
And on each link, an initial of my name.
