Right where I'm sitting now in my sunroom where I wrote it, it seemed like a real Hank Williams kind of song. But I think Waddy Wachtel pointed out to me that Hank Williams songs - that style of music - can easily be rocked up and moved up. Of course, it could be a rock and roll song! Turning Hank into rock and roll is not particularly accepted or thought about, but in actual fact Hank Williams' impact on rock and roll was enormous. I think from that you get the Everly Brothers stuff, and Felice and Boudleaux Bryant. So here I'm doing Trouble, and I'm seeing it shifting from like 1949 to like 1958. And yeah, how would the Everlys have handled this? Or Chet Atkins? Or Hank Garland, who is also another guitar player with that kind of style? We just moved it up with the drums. Also, in the back of my mind, I always thought of Trouble in terms of Poor Jenny by the Everly Brothers.
It was (about) a combination of ladies that you wouldn't wish to know.
