In constant sorrow through his days
G CI am a man of constant sorrow
D GI've seen trouble all my day.
CI bid farewell to old Kentucky
D GThe place where I was born and raised.
D GThe place where he was born and raised.
G CFor six long years I've been in trouble
D GNo pleasures here on earth I found
CFor in this world I'm bound to ramble
D GI have no friends to help me now.
D GHe has no friends to help him now.
G CIt's fare thee well my old lover
D GI never expect to see you again
CFor I'm bound to ride that northern railroad
D GPerhaps I'll die upon this train.
D GPerhaps he'll die upon this train.
G CYou can bury me in some deep valley
D GFor many years where I may lay
CThen you may learn to love another
D GWhile I am sleeping in my grave.
D GWhile he is sleeping in his grave.
G CMaybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
D GMy face you'll never see no more.
CBut there is one promise that is given
D GI'll meet you on God's golden shore.
D GHe'll meet you on God's golden shore.
