Where Trouble Is At
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Dropkick Murphys

I can tell you where that Trouble will be,
‘Cause it looks like Troubles been following me!
It might be out by the picket line,
Come on, meet us out where the Trouble’s at!

I was born the same night Trouble was born!
I’m from th’ same bed old Trouble’s from!
We could break down your window this minute or that!
Come on, meet us out where the Trouble’s at!

Up north, down south, out west, back east!
Gonna find my peace, where the Trouble’s at!

I’m from Troubledup Moutain an’ Troublesome Creek,
Trouble’s my day and Trouble’s my week!
Might break you window, we could do that!
Come on, meet us out where the Trouble’s at!

Up north, down south, out west, back east!
(Up north, down south, out west, back east!)
Gonna find my peace, where the Trouble’s at!

I’ve drunk drinks with Trouble, got half-cockeyed,
Woke up ‘tween Trouble asleep on both sides!
If Trouble asks, don’t you dare talk back,
Just meet us out where the Trouble’s at!

Up north, down south, out west, back east!
(Up north, down south, out west, back east!)
Gonna find my peace, where the Trouble’s at!
