Trouble Came

Job 3:26: "For the thing I feared has overtaken me, and what I dreaded has befallen me.

I am not at ease or quiet; I have no rest, for trouble has come."


In 2016 my friend Roike put out an album named after this song. I recorded a version with Francesco Conte for my album 12 Bars of Blues.


Listen: Ben's version, Roike's version


Well I was steadfast And I was sane I was steadfast And I was sane And the words you spoke kept ringing Ringing through my brain I was safe and I was careful Yet trouble it came

Well I was watched over And I was true I was watched over And I was true

And I stayed out of folk's business And I stayed out of harms way I was safe and I was protected Yet trouble it came

Little child with your head in the clouds You know there ain't no place to hide People get petty and people get proud So just open your arms out wide

'Cause there ain't no door been built that can keep it out There ain't no door been built that can keep it out

And there’s not a wall constructed That will not fall away I was safe and I was careful Yet trouble it came
