From the O Brother movie starring George Clooney
The Smokey River Boys
Man Of Constant Sorrow [3:01]
(In constant sorrow through his days)
 Iâ€¦â€¦ am a manâ€¦â€¦.. of constant sorrow
I've seen troubleâ€¦â€¦ all aâ€™my day.
I â€¦â€¦..bid farewellâ€¦â€¦.. to old Kentucky
The place where I â€¦â€¦.was born and raised.
(The place where he was born and raised)
 For â€¦â€¦.six long yearsâ€¦â€¦. I've been in trouble
No pleasures hereâ€¦â€¦. on earth I found
Forâ€¦â€¦.. in this worldâ€¦â€¦ I'm bound to ramble
I have no friendsâ€¦. to help me now.
( He has no friends to help him now )
It'sâ€¦aâ€™fare thee well â€¦..my old lover
Iâ€¦. never expectâ€¦ to see you again
Forâ€¦â€¦.I'm bound to rideâ€¦â€¦ that northern railroad
Perhaps I'll dieâ€¦â€¦. upon this train.
( Perhaps he'll die upon this train. )
 Youâ€¦. can bury meâ€¦.. in some deep valley
For many yearsâ€¦â€¦ where I may lay
Thenâ€¦â€¦ you may learnâ€¦.. to love another
While I am sleepingâ€¦â€¦ in my grave.
(While he is sleeping in his grave. )
 Maybe your friendsâ€¦â€¦. think I'm just a stranger
My face you'llâ€¦â€¦. never see no more.
But there is one promiseâ€¦.. that is given
I'll meet you onâ€¦.. God's golden shore.
(He'll meet you on God's golden shore.)
