A Jealous Heart and a Worried Mind

Wow, do I love this song by Peter Rowan. It comes from his Bluegrass Boy CD, which I think is a modern classic. Here’s our attempt at it.

When the blues come knocking at my door
I can’t sleep, I walk the floor
On my knees, no peace I find
With a jealous heart and a worried mind

     Those skies is black and I’m so blue
     Why did I give my heart to you
     Talk is cheap and love is blind
     With a jealous heart and a worried mind

A jealous heart, like a ball and chain
I recall your love in vain
You tore apart the ties that bind
With a jealous heart and a worried mind

Worried mind will never let you rest
You hurt the one you love the best
You treat your darling so unkind
With a jealous heart and a worried mind
