lyrics

Johnny killed a preacher with a guitar string,
Now the church ain’t got no choir ‘cause they’re too afraid to sing,
They had some dirt on the boy from some dark damn thing,
But I ain’t never gonna ask him ‘cause my boots don’t want to swing.

Billy took a likin’ to this girl up town,
But her mobster of a husband didn’t like him hangin’ round,
When Billy cut that mug up, and left him lying face down
I helped him bury the body where it'd never be found.

God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
You keep 'a writing me into your history
God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
You keep 'a reelin' me in to your debauchery,
God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
I'm your best friend and then I'm an accessory.
God damn if there ain’t trouble always following me,
God damn if there ain’t trouble always following me,

Jaynie robbed a bank-vault with an old flare gun,
Then she set the place alight with flames that rivaled the sun.
Now she keeps phoning me up, says she’s on the run,
Say’s she’d like to have a just a little more fun.

Well, Texas is the reason why the president’s dead,
But I had to be in Jackson helping Betty instead,
She had just bludgeoned her husband with a ham to his head,
So we cooked that pig up, and the cops it was fed.

God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
You keep 'a writing me into your history
God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
You keep 'a reelin' me in to your debauchery,
God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
I'm your best friend and then I'm an accessory.
God damn if there ain’t trouble always following me,
God damn if there ain’t trouble always following me,

As of late I ain’t been rollin’ the die…
I’m letting old friends rot,
I’m letting new friends fry.
Yeah I could tell you it’s easy but man I ain’t gonna lie,
It’s been a hellalotta trouble kissin’ old days goodbye.

God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
You keep 'a writing me into your history
God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
You keep 'a reelin' me in to your debauchery,
God damn if there ain’t trouble always followin’ me,
I'm your best friend and then I'm an accessory.
God damn if there ain’t trouble always following me,
God damn if there ain’t trouble always following me,

about

The Jitters Worcester, Massachusetts

Hailing from Worcester MA; stitched together from fragments of sloppy bayou blues, sleazy rockabilly,fuzzed-out garage, and the creeping, half-dead remnants of nightmares; the musical talents of Ryan Hatt and Nik McCarter are tied to a slab and thrust into the heart of an electrical storm to breath again as The Jitters! ... more
