Man Of Constant Sorrow

Soggy Bottom Boys

 BbCBbF
(Constant sorrow through his days)
 FBb
 I am the man of constant sorrow
 CBbF
I've seen trouble all my days
 FBb
 I bid farewell to ol' Kentucky
 CBbF
The place where I was born and raised
 BbCBbF
(The place where he was born and raised)
 FBbCBbF
--Break-->             
 FBb
 For six long years, I've been in trouble
 CBbF
No pleasure here on earth I find
 FBb
 For in this world, I'm bound to ramble
 CBbF
I have no friends to help me now
 BbCBbF
(He has no friends to help him now)

--Break-->             
 FBb
 It's fair thee well, my old true lover,
 CBbF
I never expect to see you again.
 FBb
 Oh, I'm bound to ride that northern railroad
 CBbF
Perhaps I'll die upon this train
 BbCBbF
(Perhaps I'll die upon this train)
 FBbCBbF
--Break-->             
 FBb
 You can bury me in some deep valley,
 CBbF
For many years where I may lay.
 FBb
 And you may learn to love another
 CBbF
while I am sleeping in my grave.
 BbCBbF
(While he is sleeping in his grave.)
 FBbCBbF
--Break-->             
 FBb
 Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
 CBbF
My face you'll never see no more
 FBb
 But there is one promise that is given
 CBbF
I'll meet you on God's golden shore
 BbCBbFF
(He'll meet you on God's golden shore)
