Double Trouble Lyrics By Lynyrd Skynyrd

    eleven times i been busted eleven times i been to jail
    some of the times i been there nobody could go my bail
    well it seems to me lord that this ol’ boy just don’t fit
    well i can jump in a rosebush and come out smelling like
    those misters dressed in blue never done so right by me
    some of the times i was innocent but the judge said guilty
    i’m not one to complain now son i tell you true
    when the black cat cross your trail lord
    it comes in misery times two

    double trouble that’s what my friends all call me
    double trouble
    i said double trouble

    well i was born down in the gutter
    with a temper as hot as fire
    spent ninety days on a peat farm just doing the county’s time
    well now even mama said son you’re bad news
    and it won’t be too long before someone puts one through you
