Man of Constant Sorrow
Traditional - as sung by Bob Dylan

Man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my days
I'll say goodbye to Colorado
Where I was born and partly raised

Your mother says I'm a stranger
My face you'll never see no more
But there's one promise, darling
I'll see you on God's golden shore

Through this open world I'm about to ramble
Through ice and snows, sleet and rain
I'm about to ride that mornin' railroad
Perhaps I'll die on that train

I'm going back to Colorado
The place I started from
If I'd knowed how bad you'd treat me
Honey I never would have come

Honey, if you don't think I love you
Just look what a fool I been
And if you don't think I'm sinkin'
Honey, look what a hole I'm in

It's a hard, hard road to travel
When you can't be satisfied
I've got a rope that's hanging o'er me
And the devil's at my side
