(F. Knight/A. Varnell)
(C) - (F) - (G)

(C) Trouble you can't fool me (F) I see you behind that tree
(C) Trouble you can't fool me (G) trying to get the ups on me
(C) Trouble you can't fool me (F) I see you behind that tree
(C) You want to (F) jump (G) on (C) me

Work hard for living, wanted just to get paid
But, sure'd be stealing for a year and a day
Would like to see a little sunshine, just to guide my way
Would like to have a little peace of mind
That's why I wanna say you better look out !

Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
Look out! Trouble you can't fool me trying to get the ups on me
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
You want to jump on me

Trouble taught me a lesson I never never will forget
Now, he took my love, she ain't paid it back yet
I had to find another just to take her place
And I sure do love her, I said we're doing ok

So look out!
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
Look out! Trouble you can't fool me trying to get the ups on me
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
You want to jump on me

Well, you know, everyday can't be Sunday [That's right!]
It's a funny thing, it seem just before daylight is your darkest hour
And you know one thing [what's that ?] behind every silver lining, there isn't a dark cloud
[And you just ain't got time to go 'round subtracting and adding 'cause you'll just be too late]
You know one thing ? [What's that ?]
Every time you get around a tree, you better stop and grab a brick [Why ?]
Old man trouble... laying and waiting on you

That's what I wanna say...
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
Look out! Trouble you can't fool me trying to get the ups on me
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
You want to jump on me

Trouble took my money, Cadillac's gone
Best suit of clothes, all raised up in the closet, oh Lord
But I'm so glad
Trouble don't last ...always
You can't fool me
