This song was one of the folk hits of the 60's. A version was first popularised by the Carter family and again later by Flatt and Scruggs and Woody Guthrie.
Chorus

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 laid down to sleep (x 3)
When I awoke I had shackles on my feet.
Twenty on links of chain around my leg (x 3)
Twenty one years on the Rocky Mountain Line.

If any one should ask you who composed this song (x 3)
Tell him it was I and I sing it the whole day long.
