Dan Tyminski Band Live at Rudy Fest Bluegrass Festival in 2009

Dan Tyminski was the actual voice behind George Clooney in the movie Oh Brother when the Soggy Bottom Boys were on the stage. George is a good actor but he can’t sing a lick.

Thanks to Allen “Styx” Hicks and James Stiltner for the video.

I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow Lyrics

In constant sorrow through his days

I am a man of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my day
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 pleasures 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
I think I’ll die upon this train

He thinks he’ll die upon this train

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then 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’ll never 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
