I Never Will Marry

The Carter Family

exibições 91

One morning as I rambled all down the seashore,
the wind it did whistle, and the waters did roar.
I heard a fair damsel make a pitiful sound,
it sounded so lonesome in the waters around.

I never will marry, or 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.

She plunged her fair body in the waters so deep,
she closed her blue eyes in the waters to sleep.
My love's gone and left me, the one I adore,
she's gone where I never will see her anymore.

I never will marry, or 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.
