Bob Dylan – Man of Constant Sorrow Lyrics


You pyonged “Bob Dylan – Man of Constant Sorrow”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
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 partly raised

[Verse 2]
Through this open world I'm a-bound to ramble
Through ice and snow, sleet and rain
I'm a-bound to ride that morning railroad
Perhaps I'll die upon that train

[Verse 3]
Your mother says that I'm a stranger
A face you'll never see no more
But here's one promise to ya
I'll see you on God's golden shore

[Verse 4]
I'm a-going back to Colorado
The place that I've started from
If I'd know-ed how bad you'd treat me
Babe, I never would have come
