Man of Constant Sorrow
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics

I am a man of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my days
And I bid farewell to old Kentucky
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 pleasures here on earth I 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

So it’s fare thee well my old true lover
I never expect to see you again
For I’m bound to ride that northern railroad
Perhaps I’ll die upon this train
Perhaps he'll die upon this train

You can bury me in some dark holler
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave
While he is sleeping in his grave

Maybe your friends think that I’m just a stranger
My face you never will 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

Dwight doesn't play or sound like he is darn near 60. And that is what makes him the coolest country singer around. If the new "bro" country singers had a brain they would hang out with Dwight and learn a thing or two.

He doesn't move like it either. He has a lot of energy on stage.

Nobody has ever sang with the unique style that Dwight possesses. He is one of a kind, and deserves to be in every Music Hall of Fame on this planet. Maybe on other planets too, now that I think about it!
