The Worry Song
Words and Music by Tara Craig © 2006

My car broke down on Friday,
And it broke down again today,
Now I’m stuck on the
605 Freeway,
Just waiting for the tow-truck man to
Take me away,

I’ve got a job,
You know I work
Real hard,
Working eight hours a day,
For little to no pay,
Sucking up to rich folks,
No matter how hard I work,
I’m still broke.
Just waiting for the good Lord to come
Take me away,

The they say money don’t grow on trees,
Well can you tell me something useful, please?
Cause I know that facts of this life I’ve been living,
And I’m tired of getting by
Barely surviving,
I’ve decided its time for me to start living,
Today,

I’m not gonna worry,
I won’t worry my life away,
I’m not in a hurry,
And I know everything’s gonna be okay,

I wonder why,
Things worked out the way they did
Not the way we planned?
I’ll let memories be memories,
Cause they’ll never be my life again,


In the midst of all my troubles,
When it seems I can’t go on,
I thankful for every trail,
Cause I know,
They only make me strong,

So I’m not gonna worry
I won’t worry my life away,
I’m not in a hurry,
And I know everything’s gonna be okay,

Cause I’ve got a roof over my head,
And I’ve got a few good friends,
I’ve got your smile,
That ought to do me for a while,

So I’m not gonna worry
I won’t worry my life away,
I’m not in a hurry,
And I know everything’s gonna be okay,
