"Only Friend " as written by Damon George Wilson, Nicholas Frazer James Fyffe, Paul Sayer, Philip Seth Campbell and Luke Benjamin Potashnick....
Trouble don't live here no more,they told me that he cut himself loose.
Mama says he never coming back,he's out there killin' the blues, yeah.
Told me once that he never could sleep, had the same dream every night.
Saw the face of the woman he loved, but she never looked into his eyes

Trouble never stayed in no jail, saw a hole in the fence and he ran.
Bloodhounds on his scent for days, but they never found nothin', they never found nothin'.
Word spread about his evil ways, and people spoke about him like he was dead.
Reverend Jones took my Mama aside, pray God they put a bullet in the poor boys' head

Lord, when the Lord has left me
Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Trouble was my only friend.

Trouble was a praying man, I would see him down there on his knees.
White knuckles on a shaking fist, crying up to the lord to be free, yeah
Then one time I saw that freedom come, when he lifted me out of my chair.
He said "Little boy you made your daddy a man,
Now listen I ain't going anywhere (no no)"

Lord, when the lord has left me
Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Trouble was my only friend

Trouble was a force of life, when he showed me how to walk on this earth.
Said "Always look with a loving eye, but don't you ever forget your own worth (son)"
And when I asked him if he ever did see that dark-haired beauty of his dreams,
He said "Son I feel in every single beat of my heart,
One day she's gonna look at me (yes she will)"

Lord, when the lord has left me
Lord, when the lord has left me
Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Trouble was my only friend

Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Oh all of my trouble
Trouble was my only friend
