Well, I know there's peace on the mountain
And that's where I want to go
But I just can't rest on the mountaintop
Knowin' the trouble down here below
Whoa, trouble down here below

Well, I know how to make it to the top of the mountain
'Cause I've been there a time or so
But I cannot rest on the mountaintop
Knowin' the trouble down here below
Yeah, yeah, trouble down here below

I got a mother, father, sister, brothers
Cryin' down here in a world of trouble
Well, there ain't no trouble on the mountain
But there's trouble down here below
Yeah, yeah, trouble down here below

Now people drinkin' and gamblin', rovin' and ramblin'
Fightin' and shootin', yeah, they're a hatin' and disputin'

No Lord, there ain't no trouble on the mountain
But there's trouble down here below
Hey, yeah, trouble down here below

There's trouble down here, trouble down here
My brothers and sisters are cryin' in a world of trouble

I can't have no peace on the mountaintop
'Cause I'm a worried and I'm troubled

No Lord, there ain't no trouble on the mountain
But there's trouble down here below
Whoa, trouble down here below
'Cause there's trouble down here below
