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.
