Trouble in Mind is a blues song written by jazz pianist Richard M. Jones. It has been performed by numerous musicians including Nina Simone, Sam Cooke, Johnny Cash, and Louis Armstrong. The blue and cyan sunburst featured on this button reflects a literal visual interpretation of the first three lines of lyrics.

“Trouble in mind, I’m blue
But I won't be blue always,
'cause the sun's gonna shine.”
