The Lord knows I've tried
To do what's right
For five whole long years I stayed home
Both day and night

And I smell trouble
I smell trouble ahead of me
Yes, worries and trouble
No they just won't let me be

People talk about me
Both night and day
I cried Lord, please forgive them
And I go the other way

I smell trouble
Lord, I smell trouble ahead of me
Yes, worries and trouble
No they just won't let me be

And from now on
I will not run and hide
I'm gonna face trouble with a smile
And hope they pass me by

I smell trouble
Lord, I smell trouble way up there ahead of me
Yes, worries and trouble
Lord, they just won't, they just won't
They just won't let me be, oh, no
