Soggy Bottom Boys – I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow lyrics

(In constant sorrow all through his days)

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

(The place where he 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

(He has no friends to help him 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

(Perhaps he'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

(While he is sleeping in his 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

(He'll meet you on God's golden shore)

    - 2
    The song is about a man of constant sorrow who saved Tommy from the kkk with Delmar and Pete, and they became a gang of cool criminal villains and it is continued in part 2 which is called Ocean's 11. They all change their names and looks and rob a casino centuries in the future. And after the oceans trilogy it all ends with the final story called Tomorrowland where Clooney goes to Tomorrow.
