This is the easiest way to play it that I've found.

 D   G        A      G           D
(In constant sorrow through his days)

D                      G
I am a man of constant sorrow
          A       G      D
I've seen trouble all my days
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
                A      G        D
The place where I was born and raised
      G          A       G       D
(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 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 
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.)

try putting a capo on it and figure it out cuz the chords could be right if they were down some, but the capos going to end up really low on the neck of the guitar.

DADGAd Capo 3 is what I used to learn it c: gives it more of a older sound the d should be tuned down to get the full G when played c:
