​I Never Will Marry

This song is by Anita Carter and appears on the album Ring of Fire (1989) and on the compilation album Appalachian Angel: Her Recordings 1950-1972 & 1996 (2004).

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

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

The shells in the ocean shall be my death bed
The fish in deep water swim over my head
