​The Damsel's Lament (I Never Will Marry)

This song is by The Brothers Four and appears on the album The Brothers Four (1960).

Some say that love's a gentle thing
But it's only brought me pain
'Cause the only one I ever did love
Has gone with the midnight train.

I never will marry, never take me a wife
I expect to live single all the rest of my life.

The train pulled out the whistle blew
With a low and a lonesome mourn
She's gone, she's gone like the midnight dew
And left me here alone.

I never will marry, never take me a wife
I expect to live single all the rest of my life.

There's many a change in the winter wind
And a change in the clouds design
There's many a change in a young girls heart
But never a change in mine.

I never will marry, never take me a wife
I expect to live single all the rest of my life...
