                       E                  H7 

Zmartwień pełną mam głowę,

       E                     A a7 

Ale ja nie skarżę się


Słońca ujrzę wnet blask

               H7                       E A G0 E H7 

I niech wiatr pociesza mnie. 


Położę się na zimnej szynie,
Ten pociąg niech uwolni mnie
Od tych myśli szalonych,
Do domu wrócić chcę.



Zmartwienia te są jak sen

Jak kolejny zwykły dzień

Słyszę jak zbliża się 

Do domu wrócić chcę. 



Już nie mam sił wciąż skakać,
I śmieje się, by nie płakać,

Patrzę na błękit nieba

I bluesa znów śpiewam.

Trouble in mind I'm blue, but I won't be blue always,
'Cause the sun gonna shine in my back door some day.
I'm gonna lay my head on a lonesome railroad line
And let that two-nineteen pacify my mind
I'm gonna lay my head on that lonesome railroad track
But when I hear that whistle, Lord I'm gonna pull it back.
Well, trouble, oh trouble on my worried mind.
When you see me laughin', I'm laughin' just to keep from cryin'.

Richard M. Jones, born Richard Marigny Jones, (13 June 1892 - 8 December 1945) was a jazz pianist, composer, band leader, and record producer. Numerous songs bear his name as author, including „Trouble in Mind”.
Jones grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. Jones suffered from a stiff leg and walked with a limp; fellow musicians gave him the nickname „Richard My Knee Jones” as a pun on his middle name. In his youth he played alto horn in brass bands. His main instrument, however, became the piano. By 1908 he was playing in Storyville, the red-light district of New Orleans. A few years later, he often led a small band which sometimes included Joe Oliver. Jones also worked in the bands of John Robichaux, Armand J. Piron, and Papa Celestin.
In 1918 Jones moved to Chicago. He worked as Chicago manager for publisher Clarence Williams. Jones began recording in 1923, making gramophone records as a piano soloist, accompanist to vocalists, and with his bands The Jazz Wizards and The Chicago Cosmopolitans. He recorded for Gennett, OKeh, Victor, and Paramount Records in the 1920s. He also worked for OKeh Records as Chicago supervisor of the company's „Race” (African-American) Records for most of the decade. In the 1930s he played a similar role for Decca.
Richard M. Jones worked for Mercury Records until his death.
