#15 - T-R-O-U-B-L-E (1975)

"T-R-O-U-B-L-E" was released on April 22, 1975 and preceded the upcoming album "Today".  Jerry Chesnut wrote the song in 1975, taking inspiration from a singer and pianist named Little David Wilkins. He said that, when writing the title, he thought of a woman walking through the door and causing trouble; he added that he spelled out the word "trouble", then the words "alone" and "looking", and found that they rhymed when spelled out.  During Elvis' 1975 concert tour he added the song to his repertoire.  Listen to the live and album version below.
