Troublesome Waters  Iris DeMent

In addition to writing some of the most beautiful songs in a generation, Iris
DeMent has done some absolutely tantalizing covers. This is one of my

From the album MY LIFE by Iris DeMent
[C]Troublesome waters much b[F]lacker than n[C]ight
Are hiding from v[Am]iew the harbor's bright l[G]ight.
[C]Tossed on the turmoil of l[F]ife's troubled [C]sea
I cried to my s[Am]aviour, "Have [G]mercy on [C]me."
Then g[F]ently I'm feeling the touch of His h[C]and
Guiding my b[Am]oat in safely to l[G]and
[C]Leading the way to h[F]eaven's bright s[C]hore
Where troublesome w[Am]aters I'm f[G]earing no m[C]ore.
Troublesome waters around me do roll
They're rocking my boat and wrecking my soul.
Loved ones are drifting and living in sin
The treacherous whirlpools are pulling them in.
When troublesome waters and rolling so high
I lift up my voice and to heaven I cry,
"Lord, I am trusting, give guidance to me
And steady my boat on life's troubled sea."
I usually play it with the capo on the fifth fret so I can play in
That way a lot of the melody notes are nearby for me to fingerpick.
