Trouble, Trouble, Troubles In My Soul - Poem by jJO CAREY

I got troulble in my soul
No other way to put it
Got the blues so bad I want to cry
Every sad song I ever heard

Play the lonesome blues loud and hard
Just want to hear that trumpet clear
Pull all the junk out my head
Clear it up and strart over again

I know I can't do that, can't even come close
But play the blues anyway till I can find some tears
Cause tears don't come easy to my eyes
But pain sure comes into my soul.

Somehow I got to find solace
Somehow I got to find some peace
Ain't had no peace for so long
Wouldn't know how to act

Just keep on playing, no stopping inbetween
Keep those drums and sax on high
Let that trumpet go on and on
Till these blues will wash away

Am I losing it, is it all going down
Don't know any other answer
Just play so loud i don't have a brain
Nothing left inside but lonely pain

I want the blues, nothing else with do
Cause I got troulble, trouble, trouble
That just won't go away
And pain, pain, pain down in my soul.
