Ginger Baker's Air Force – Man Of Constant Sorrow lyrics

I am a man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my days
I'll say goodbye to Birmingham
Where I was born and partly raised

Your mother says I'm a traveler
My face you'll never see no more
But there's one promise, darling
I'll see you on God's golden shores

Through this whole world
I'm about to ramble
I'll see snow, sleet and rain

I'm about to take
That morning railroad
Perhaps I'll die on that train


I'm going back to Birmingham
Where I was born
And where I've been

If I'd known
How bad you'd treat me
Honey, I never would have come


I am a man of constant sorrow
