Intro: G/c /b D/a
[ Tab from: ]
       G               C
I am a man of constant sorrow
          D              G      /c-b D/a
I've seen trouble all my days
      G               C
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
                D              G        C
The place where I was born and raised
                 D               G       /b-C D/a
(The place where he was born and raised)

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

It's fare thee well my only brother
I merry expect to see you here
For I'm bound to ride that mornin' 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... (sorry)
And you may learn to love another
While I am sleepin' in my grave
(While he is sleepin' 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)

Apologies for mistakes in the text (I'm Italian)
That's a very great song!
