A friend of mine told me “ All the energy you put into worrying is not going to change the outcome!” . He turned out to be absolutely right and thus started my transformation to a new life.
I wrote this song while sitting alone in the sun on a deck in Deep Cove Nova Scotia. I was in drop D tuning and just fooling around when the song appeared and wrote itself.
I used to worry all the time what will the future bring The future arrived anyway Worrying didn’t change a thing I was always in the future, I was always in the past I was never in the here and now And the present quickly passed No more worries No more worries Worrying changed my face. I always wore a frown When I ploughed another furrow It always pointed down The thing about a wrinkle is that you can always tell How someone lived their life And if they lived it well No more worries No more worries I worried ‘bout so many things my thinking was deranged ‘cause what’s the point in worrying ‘bout things you cannot change you might as well burn water, or wash your face with bark be breathing without oxygen be reading in the dark No more worries No more worries Nothing comes from worrying, I heard a stranger say It robs you of your energy To live your life today So give me all your worries, I’ll take your heavy load You can rise up singing And go dancing down the road No more worries No more worries
