I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow (Radio Station Version)
Man Of Constant Sorrow - The Soggy Bottom Boys - BANJO TAB COLLECTION
I am a man of constant sorrow I've seen trouble all my days I bid farewell to ol' Kentucky The place where I was born and raised. For six long years I've been in trouble no pleasure here on earth I've found For in this world, I'm bound to ramble I have no friends to help me now. It's fair thee well, my old true lover I never expected to see you again For I'm bound to ride that Northern Railroad perhaps I'll die upon this train. You can bury me in Sunny Valley For many years there I may lay And you will learn to love another while I am sleeping in my grave. Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger My face you never will see no more But there is one promise that is given I'll meet you on Gods golden shore.

Two of the variations feature the verses being sung back-to-back, and the other three variations feature additional music between each verse. Despite its subsequent success, "Man of Constant Sorrow" received little significant radio airplay and only charted at 35 on the U. Member area My account Log out Log in Forgot your password?
