CHORUS: I am a man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my days
I bid farewell to old Kentucky,
The place where I was borned and raised.
#1 For six long years I've been in trouble
No pleasure here on earth I find.
For in this world I'm bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now.
#2 It's fare thee well my own 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.
#3 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.
#4 It's fare thee well to a native country
The places I have loved so well.
For I have seen all kinds of trouble
In this cruel world, no tongue can tell.
#5 Maybe your friends think I'm just a stanger
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.
