"I Am a Girl of Constant Sorrow" (sheet music)


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

The place where she 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

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

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

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

Oh, my darling friends, don't cry
