I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow  Soggy Bottom Boys


([F]in constant [C]sorrow through his [F]days)
[F]I am the m-[F]an of constant [Bb]sorrow
I've seen tr-[C]ouble all my [F]days
[F]I bid fare-[F]well to old Ken-[Bb]tucky
The place where [C]I was born and [F]raised
(The place where [C]he was born and [F]raised)


For six long years, I've been in trouble
No pleasure here on earth I find
For in this world, I'm bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now
(He has no friends to help him now)


It's fare thee well, my own true lover
I don't expect to see you again
Oh, I'm bound to ride that northern railroad
Perhaps I'll die upon this train
(Perhaps he'll die upon this train)


You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I'm sleeping in my grave
(While he's sleeping in his grave)

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
My face you'll never see no more
But there is one promise that is given
I'll meet you on God's golden shore
(He'll meet you on God's golden shore)
