Trouble I Once Knew - Eleanor Ellis (4:25)

This gorgeous song was written by William Lee Ellis, who actually is not kin to Eleanor. Her sweet guitar and vocals basically blow you right out of the water.

She has two previous CD's and a new one coming out in 2006. For more on Eleanor, see http://www.acousticblues.com/eleanor_bio.htm; Eleanor can be reached at eleanordellis@yahoo.com.

LYRICS: TROUBLE I ONCE KNEW

Troubles I once knew
Burden me no more
Troubles I once knew
Burden me no more
Trouble I once knew
Burden me no more
Fare ye well
Fare ye well

Jonah in the belly
Could not be kept down
Jonah in the belly
Could not be kept down
Jonah in the belly
Could not be kept down
Fare ye well
Fare ye well

(Eleanor plays)

Body was broken
Spirit set free
Body was broken
Spirit set free
Body was broken
Spirit set free
Fare ye well
Fare ye well

March into Memphis
Bullet brought him down
March into Memphis
Bullet brought him down


Fare ye well

(Eleanor Hums)

Walk on the water
Heal the leper too
Walk on the water
Heal leper too
Walk on the water
Heal the leper too
Fare ye well

When the storm was heavy
Saw the rainbow sign
When the storm was heavy
Saw the rainbow sign
(Eleanor hums)

Into the valley
We will head on
Into the valley
We will head on
Into the valley
We will head on

Trouble I once knew
Burden me no more
Trouble I once knew
Burden me no more
Trouble I once knew
Burden me no more
Fare ye well
