I'm worried now but I won't be worried long

Am
Went across the river, I laid down to sleep, 
E                                    Am
Went across the river, I laid down to sleep, 
Am
Went across the river, I laid down to sleep, 
E                                Am
when I awoke there were shackles on my feet

Asked the judge, what might be my crime? and he told me that I was out of time
21 links of chain, wrapped around my leg, and on each link the initials of my name
The train I ride is twenty one coaches long, and the women I love are on that train and gone
If anyone should ask you, who composed this song, tell them I don't know, but I sing it all day long
