          G                                   C                          D                          G

1. I am the man of constant sorrow, I've seen trouble all my days

2. For six long years, I've been in trouble, No pleasure here on earth I find

3. It's fare-thee-well my own new lover, I never expect to see you again

4. You can bury me in some deep valley, Or any hill where I may lay

5. Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger, My face you'll never see no more


          G                                   C                                   D                          G

1. I bid farewell to old Kentucky, The place where I was born and raised

2. For in this world, I'm bound to ramble, I have no friends to help me now

3. For I'm bound to ride that northern railroad, Perhaps I'll die upon this train

4. Then you may learn to love another, While I am sleeping in my grave

5. But there is one promise that is given, I'll meet you on God's golden shore
