(Emory Gordy - Patty Loveless)

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

For many a year I have struggled
No pleasure here on earth I've found
All through this world I'm bound to wander
There is no one to help me now.

--- Instrumental ---

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many a year in peace I'll lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave.

It's fare-Thee-well my one true lover
I never expect to see you again
But there's one promise that is given
I'll meet you in God's golden land...
This song is from the album "Mountain Soul".
