I Am A Girl Of Constant Sorrow

I am a girl of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my days
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
the place where I was borned and raised

My mother, how I hated to leave her
Mother dear, who now is dead
But I had to go and leave her
so my children could have bread

Well, our clothes are always ragged,
and our feet are always bare
And I know if there is a heaven
that we all are going there

Goodbye my friends I hate to leave you
It grieves me so that we must part
For I know we all are hungry
Oh, it almost breaks my heart

Well, we call this Hell on earth friends
I must tell you all goodbye
Oh, I know you all are hungry
Oh my darling friends , don’t cry
