I am a man of constant sorrow
I've known troubles all my day
I bid farewell to south alberta
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 pleasure here on earth I've 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!
now it's farewell to thee my gentle lover
I do not think we'll meet again
for I am bound to ride that northern railroad
perhaps I'll die upon this train
you can bury me in some deep valley
for many years there I may lay
then you may learn to love another
while I am sleeping in my grave
while he is sleeping in his grave!
