Well now, it been kina gloomy round here and Getter is feelin a little lonesome

and hooked up with the soggy bottom boys down yonder and sold his soul to the devil so to speak but was invited to sing along... well here goes…

geterdone

I… am a man… of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my day.
we bid farewell to our old reality
The place where we were born and raised.

[chorus] The place where we were born and raised

For 52 long weeks we've been in trouble
No pleasures here on earth we have found
For in this world… were bound to ramble
for we have new friends to help us now.

[chorus] for we have new friends… to help us now

It's fare thee well, to my old true self  
I never expect to see you again
For were bound to ride that northern interferon railroad
Perhaps we'll survive upon this Riba train.

[chorus] Perhaps we'll survive… upon this Riba train.

You can’t bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to recover
From what has been aliening you today

[chorus] from what has been aliening… you today.

Maybe our friends will think were just strangers
but our faces you will see again.
But there is one promise that is given
We’ll meet you on God's SVR’s golden shore.
[chorus] for we will meet… you on God's SVR’S golden shore.

Great song. As you know, that movie owes a tongue in cheek debt to Homer's 'Odyssey'. I'd love to hear your 'interpretation' of 'Tales of Brave Ulysses'.
