See the video here! The song is a real life reflection of a bluegrass musician from Kentucky of the early 20th century. He was miner and logger who was robbed, shot and ended up blind.
I am a man of constant sorrow I've seen trouble all my days I bid farewell to ol' Kentucky The place where I was born and raised. For six long years I've been in trouble no pleasure here on earth I've found For in this world, I'm bound to ramble I have no friends to help me now. It's fair thee well, my old true lover I never expected to see you again For I'm bound to ride that Northern Railroad perhaps I'll die upon this train.
