I Never Will Marry

COne morning as GI rambled down Cby the sea Fshore
The wind it did Cwhistle and the Gwaters did Croar
I heard of fair Gmaiden make a Cpitiful Fsound
It sounded so Clonesome in the Gwaters Caround
CI never will Gmarry I’ll Cbe no man’s Fwife
I expect to live Csingle all the Gdays of my Clife

 

1. One morning as I rambled down by the sea shore
The wind it did whistle and the waters did roar
I heard of fair maiden make a pitiful sound
It sounded so lonesome in the waters around
I never will marry I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life

2. My love’s gone and left me the one I adore
She’s gone where I’ll never see her anymore
She plunged her fair body in the waters so deep
She closed her pretty blue eyes in the waters to sleep
I never will marry I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life

3. I never will marry I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life
The shells in the ocean shall be my death bed
The fish in deep water swim over my head
I never will marry I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single all the days of my life
