MAN OF CONSTANT SORROW
Traditional


INTRO: A D


D D7 G
I am a man of constant sorrow,
A D
I have seen trouble all my day.
D D7 G
I bid farewell to old Kentucky,
A D
The state where I was born and raised.


For six long years I've been in trouble,
No pleasures here on earth I found.
For in this world I'm bound to travel,
I have no friends to help me now.

You may bury me in some deep valley,
For many years where I may lay.
Then you may learn to love another,
While I am sleeping in my 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.
