Man Of Constant Sorrow

Dick Burnett



In constant sorrow through all his days (acapella)
Banjolele solo [G][G]
[G] I am a man of constant [C] sorrow (solo singer)
I've seen [D] trouble [D7] all my [G] days.
[G] I bid farewell to old [C] Kentucky
The place where [D] I [D7] was born and [G] raised.
The place where [D] he was [D7] born and [G] raised.
[G] [C] [D] [D7] [G]

[G] For six long years I've been in [C] trouble
No pleasure [D] here [D7] on earth I've [G] found.
[G] For in this world I'm bound to [C] ramble
I have no [D] friends [D7] to help me [G] now.
He has no [D] friends [D7] to help him [G] now.
[G] [C] [D] [D7] [G]

[G] It's fare thee well my own true [C] lover
I never [D] expect [D7] to see you [G] again.
[G] For I'm bound to ride that Northern [C] railroad
Perhaps I'll [D] die [D7] upon this [G] train.
Perhaps he'll [D] die [D7] upon that [G] train.
[G] [C] [D] [D7] [G]




[G] You can bury me in some deep [C] valley
For many [D] years [D7] where I may [G] lay.
[G] Then you may learn to love [C] another
While I am [D] sleeping [D7] in my [G] grave.
While he is [D] sleeping [D7] in his [G] grave.
[G] [C] [D] [D7] [G]

[G] Maybe your friends think I'm just a [C] stranger
My face you [D] never [D7] will see no [G]more.
[G] But there is one promise that is [C] given,
I'll meet you [D] on [D7] God's golden [G] shore.
He'll meet you [D] on [D7] God's golden [G] shore.
[D7] [G]
