man of constant sorrow lyrics – rod stewart

(traditional, arr. by rod stewart)

i am a man of constant sorrow
i’ve seen trouble all my days
i’ll say goodbye to colorado
where i was born and prob’ly raised

your mother says i am a stranger
my face you’ll never see no more
but there’s one promise darling
i’ll see you on god’s golden sh*r*

through this open world i’m about to ramble
through ice, snow, sleet and rain
i am about to rob the mornin’ railroad
perhaps i’ll die on that train

i’m goin’ back to colorado
place that i started from
if i’d knowed how bad you’d treat me
honey i never would have come
