Man Of Constant Sorrow - Smokey River Boys Lyrics

Man Of Constant Sorrow

(In constant sorrow through his days)

Verse Number One:
I…… am a man…… of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble…… all a’my day.
I ……bid farewell…… to old Kentucky
The place where I ……was born and raised.
(The place where he was born and raised)

Verse Number Two:
For ……six long years…… I've been in trouble
No pleasures here…… on earth I found
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 )

Verse Number Three:
It's…a’fare thee well …my old true lover
I… never expect… to see you again
For……I'm bound to ride…… that northern railroad
Perhaps I'll die…… upon this train.
( Perhaps he'll die upon this train. )

Verse Number Four:
You… can 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.
(While he is sleeping in his grave. )

Verse Number Five:
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.)
