Anita Carter – I Never Will Marry lyrics

One morning as I rambled down by the seashore
The wind it did whistle and the waters did roar
I heard of fair dancer 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
The shells in the ocean shall be my death bed
The fish in deep water swim over my head
My love's gone and left me the one I adore
He's gone where I never shall see her anymore
She plunged her fair body in the waters so deep
She closed her pretty blue eyes forever to sleep

I never will marry I'll be no man's wife...
