Peter, Paul And Mary - Sorrow Lyrics




I am a man of constant sorrow;
I've seen trouble all my day
I'm going back to California,
Place where I was partly raised.

All through this world, I'm bound to ramble.
Through storm and wind, through sleet and rain
I'm bound to ride that northern railroad,
Perhaps I'll take the very next train.

Your friends they say I am a stranger.
You'll never see my face no more.
There is just one promise that's given.
We'll sail on God's Golden Shore.

I am a man of constant sorrow,
I've seen trouble all my day
I'm going back to California,
Place where I was partly raised.

Peter, Paul And Mary Sorrow Comments
  1. Juanita Imhoff

    This is a song that got me through so many of the trials that are know as my life

  2. David Craig

    Anyone notice this song in the movie, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Vastly different tune though, when they were on the stage singing it.

  3. rockn24x7goog

    OMW! How is it that I've been a fan of PPM all these years and never heard them sing this Dylan tune??? Unbelievably gorgeous harmonies, lush with emotion... brings a tear to my eyes! Thank you for uploading this beautiful rendition...

    David Anthony Stone

    I don’t think this was a Dylan song
    And older folk song

  4. Cavon Jones

    I am a man of constant sorrow;
    I've seen trouble all my day
    I'm going back to California,
    Place where I was partly raised.
    All through this world, I'm bound to ramble.
    Through storm and wind, through sleet and rain
    I'm bound to ride that northern railroad,
    Perhaps I'll take the very next train.
    Your friends they say I am a stranger.
    You'll never see my face no more.
    There is just one promise that's given.
    We'll sail on God's golden shore.
    I am a man of constant sorrow,
    I've seen trouble all my day
    I'm going back to California,
    Place where I was partly raised.

    This entire debut album is simply perfect and holds up well today, as do most of PP&M recordings.

    David Anthony Stone

    Everything they sing is just wonderful
