Man Of Constant Sorrow Lyrics


I am a Man Of Constant Sorrow,
I've seen trouble all my day.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky,
The place where I was born and raised.
(The place where he was born and raised )

For six long years I've been in trouble,
No pleasures here on earth I found.
For in this world I'm bound to ramble,
I have no friends to help me now.
(He has no friends to help him now.)

It's fare thee well my old lover.
I never expect to see you again.
For I'm bound to ride that northern railroad,
Perhaps I'll die upon this train.
(Perhaps he'll die upon this train.)

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.
(While he is sleeping in his grave.)

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
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.
(He'll meet you on God's golden shore.)

Man Of Constant Sorrow
  • This song was featured in the movie Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?, which is based on the novel The Odyssey. The song relates to the story: the line, "I am a man of constant sorrow. I've seen trouble all my days" refers to Odysseus and all the troubles he had on his journey home.
  • The Soggy Bottom Boys were a group that was made up for the movie with George Clooney as one of the members. The real voice was that of Dan Tyminski from the band Union Station, with backing vocals from Harley Allen and Pat Enright. Tyminski was later tapped by the EDM star Avicii to sing on his 2013 Bluegrass-inspired song "Hey Brother."
  • This song was first published in 1913 by the blind folk singer Richard Burnett. Some artists who recorded the song include The Stanley Brothers, Bob Dylan and Jerry Garcia.
  • The song won the 2001 CMA award for Best Single and a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.
  • Released in 1961, Judy Collins' first album was called A Maid of Constant Sorrow, with the title track being a version of this song with the gender reversed.
