Folk singer-songwriter Father John Misty, also known as J. Tillman, has released a cover of Cat Stevens' 1969 song "Trouble," which you can listen to above. The song will appear in the documentary ONCE I WAS: The Hal Ashby Story, which details the life of the Oscar-winning American director.

The acoustic-guitar driven song showcases Father John Misty's emotional vocals with minimal keyboard effects in the background. The vibe of his rendition remains true to the original, though Cat Stevens' version sounds slightly folkier.

Father John Misty "Trouble" Lyrics:

Oh trouble set me free
I have seen your face
And it's too much too much for me

Oh trouble can't you see
You're eating my heart away
And there's nothing much left of me

I've drunk your wine
You have made your world mine
So won't you be fair
So won't you be fair

I don't want no more of you
So won't you be kind to me
Just let me go where
I'll have to go there

Oh trouble move away
I have seen your face
and it's too much for me today

Oh trouble can't you see
You have made me a wreck
Now won't you leave me in my misery

I've seen your eyes
and I can see death's disguise
Hangin' on me
Hangin' on me

I'm beat, I'm torn
Shattered and tossed and worn
Too shocking to see
Too shocking to see

Oh trouble move from me
I have paid my debt
Now won't you leave me in my misery

Oh trouble please be kind
I don't want no fight
And I haven't got a lot of time
