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

By Maybelle Carter, E. J. Carter, and Dixie Deen
From the album MY LIFE by Iris DeMent

C                        F            C
Troublesome waters much blacker than night
                 Am                       G
Are hiding from view the harbor's bright light.
C                         F              C
Tossed on the turmoil of life's troubled sea
               Am            G        C
I cried to my saviour, "Have mercy on me."

      F                                   C
Then gently I'm feeling the touch of His hand
            Am                G
Guiding my boat in safely to land
C                   F               C
Leading the way to heaven's bright shore
                   Am         G          C
Where troublesome waters I'm fearing no more.

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.
