Dan Tyminski & Ron Block – I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow

I am a man of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my day.
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.

[chorus] He has no friends to help him now

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

[chorus] Perhaps he’ll die upon this train.

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave.

[chorus] While he is sleeping in his grave.

Maybe your friends think I’m just a stranger
My face you’ll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given
I’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.

[chorus] He’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.

Dan Tyminski Band – Freeborn Man – March 08

Well, I was born in the Southland
Twenty-some odd years ago
I ran away for the first time
When I was four years old

   I’m a free born man
   My home is on my back
   I know every inch of highway
   And every foot of back road
   Every mile of railroad track

I got a gal in Cincinnati
Got a woman in San Antone
I always loved the girl next door
But anyplace is home

I got me a worn-out guitar
I carry an old tote sack
I hocked it about two hundred times
But I always get it back

You may not like my appearance
May not like my song
May not tike the way I talk
But you like the way I’m gone

Dan Tyminski Band – I Ain’t Broke (But I’m Badly Bent)

Well, I’m (I) going back to the country
(IV) I can’t pay the (I) rent
(IV) Lord, I’m not com (I) pletely broke
But brother I’m badly bent
I can’t under (IV) stand where my money (I) went
I ain’t (V) broke, but I’m badly (I) bent

Well, I had a lot of money
But to the city I went
I met too many good-looking girls
And that’s where my money went
Now I know just where it went
I ain’t broke, but I’m badly bent

When I get back to the country
I’ll be living in a tent
Ma and Pa will sure be mad
About all the money I spent
They can’t understand just where it went
I ain’t broke, but I’m badly bent

Well, now I know just where it went
Well, I ain’t broke, but brother I’m badly bent
