OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies (boys) promenade go once around that ring
Back home swing that man around
Join hands and circle, circle to the left go round
Do an allemande left and weave the ring
Well I am a man of constant sorrow
Swing that girl and promenade
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around you go
Walk in and square thru go four
Go all the way around and you do the right & left thru
Veer to the left and ferris wheel
Well the center two square thru 3/4 round
Swing with the corner girl and promenade
*I am a man of constant sorrow
I've had trouble all my days


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*For six long years I've been in trouble
*I am a man that's bound to ramble

Man Of Constant Sorrow
 
 

I am a man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my days
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised

For six long years I've been in trouble
No pleasure here on Earth I found
For in this world I'm bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now

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

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

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

Lyrics by Dick Burnett (probably adapted from an earlier song).
Recorded by Dick Burnett; Bob Dylan; Soggy Bottom Boys; many others.
