Lyrics by Devin Bean
Adapted from 'I Never Will Marry' - Traditional

They say that love is gentle
But it's only brought me pain
The only girl I ever loved
Has left with another man
I struck down this lover
His body she did find
Her cry was oh so lonesome
I nearly lost my mind

She plunged her fair body
Into the waters so deep
She closed her sweet eyes
Into the waters to sleep

A full remorse now that we’re apart
But no change in the star’s align
No ache remains in her silent heart
Yet she’s left me with all of mine
I will never marry
I'll share no one’s love
I expect to live single
Till I fly with the doves

She plunged her fair body
Into the waters so deep
She closed her sweet eyes
Into the waters to sleep

The shells in the ocean
Shall be my resting bed
As the fishies of the deep
Swim over my head
With rising sun I run to shore
I stand there at her spot
The blood has finally washed away
But sadly she has not

She plunged her fair body
Into the waters so deep
She closed her sweet eyes
Into the waters to sleep
