Wrath Warbone Tries "Man Of Constant Sorrow"

Updated on January 2, 2015

Have you ever wondered why there are so many versions of the old American folk song, “Man of Constant Sorrow?” As my mind automatically made up its own version, particular to me, I realized that is what folk artists traditionally do with this song. Here we go...


I am a man

of constant sorrow

I've seen trouble all my days

Seems like I

was born to tangle

I'll cry no more come one just day


My Pappy says

I am an outlaw

that I must fall; just born that way

I'm in a space

of no tomorrows

and they have taken my today's


I recall

He worked the train yards

way up north Pennsylvania way

Then He worked into Ohio

where He fell ill

and passed away


When Mama heard

she came to scramble

to find her young a place to stay

She turned unto

a house of orphans

where fires storm those pots of clay


That clever child

she cane to rumble,

to find safe shelter for her young

How she found

that house of commons

that never smiled but did not shun


Her Mother says

I'm like:" the stranger,

a face you'll never see no more"

But there is one promise, Darling,

I'll see you on

God's golden shore


I am a man

of constant sorrow

I've seen trouble all my days

Seems like I

was born to tangle

I'll cry no more... come one fine day

      I heard this song first on the movie Oh Brother. I enjoyed the song as performed by Clooney and his gang (I'm sure they were not actually singing it?). Thanks for sharing the background on this tune. Quite interesting!
