Lyrics

Words and music by Michelle Malone

my mother was a nightclub singer til she found the Lord

she and daddy made me in the back seat of a Ford
she tried to teach me right from wrong
but we always seemed to disagree
cause I’ve always been in trouble
trouble’s always been in me

at sweet 16, i ran away and promptly got arrested
For mouthing off at the police down at the Greyhound station
i got kicked out of 3 high schools trying to get my rock and roll degree
cause I’ve always been in trouble, trouble’s always been in me

they said sit down, I stood up
turn it down, I turned it up
dont bite the hand, i sunk my teeth in deep

One day the devil parked his limo right out on my curb
He offered fame and fortune, it was more than I had ever heard
I signed away my soul foolishly thinking i’d just won the lottery
cause I’ve always been in trouble and trouble’s always been in me

on tour in Cleveland, Ohio after we caused a riot
some sons of bikers bought us shots and took us to their hide out
all night it snowed, when i awoke
I had half a banjo tattooed on my knee
I’ve always been in trouble and trouble’s always been in me

they said sit down, I stood up
turn it down, I turned it up
dont bite the hand, i sunk my teeth in deep

I have a few regrets but they don’t add up to a minute
que sera sera, whatever will be when I’m finished
I cant help myself every time I see you play your tambourine
Cause I’ve always been in trouble, trouble’s always been in me
