Traditional (Originally by Dick Burnett circa 1912 or so, rewritten many times, including this one)


Couldn't help but rewrite and put my own little spin on this amazing classic that''s really stood the test of time. The many small changes and couple extra lines I added kind of make it feel like more of a love song (the idea of an old wanderer type on a train writing a letter to his long lost love just before he dies was kind of the inspiration for it).


I am a man of constant sorrow I seen trouble all my days I bid farewell to Colorado The place where I was born and raised And for far too many years I been a hurtin' No pleasure here, on earth, I find For in this world I'm bound to ramble Still babe you never left my mind. Hey it's a fair thee well my old true lover I don't expect I 'll see you again For I'm a bound to ride that northern railroad And I may die upon that train And though your friends think I'm but a stranger A face you'll never see no more And though death may seem a mighty ocean And I know not where I'm headed toward Still, here is one promise to ya baby I'll meet you on that other shore Yes, here is one promise to ya baby I'll meet you on that other shore.
