The Seven Sisters sent me away happy, 'round the corner I met another little girl. She looked at me and smiled and said, 'Go devil and destroy the world' - J.T. Funny Papa Smith, Seven Sisters Blues Part 2

One of my favorite versions was a rewrite recorded by Cliff Carlisle in 1937 as Trouble Minded Blues;

Thanks for the additional versions, JRO and Lignite, much appreciated, especially when I've seen no mention of the Carlisle rewrite before!
I added them to the playlist.

Cheers

I just remembered about another country rewrite also from 1937; Jimmie Davis Jimmie's Travelin' Blues

Great post, Pan.
As far as the lyrics by Thelma La Vizzo, I'm hearing on the verse:
Trouble in mind, trouble in mind,
It's just the nervous and blue kind

The rest of that version I hear the same that you have transcribed.

Thanks Davek, I made the changes to the lyrics as you suggested!

Anyone else care to take a listen to the parts with question marks at the verse and the 2nd chorus?

Cheers

Hi all,
I dug up the attached version of "Trouble In Mind" from my old Rounder record, "Let's Go Riding".  I played it there as a duet with Russ Barenberg. 
All best,
Johnm

A nice change, to hear a faster version of the song, John! Thanks for sharing!

Stefan Wirz has added Larry Johnson's version on his YouTube channel. Coincidentally, it too is faster than most versions on this thread.
