Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs Lyrics

One night as I rambled down by the sea shore
And wind it did whistle and the waters did roar
I heard a fair maiden make a pityful sound
It sounded so lonesome in the waters around
I never will marry I'll be no mas's wife
I accept to live single all the days of my life
[ dobro ]
My love's gone and left me the one I adore
He's gone where I never will see him no more
The shells in the ocean shall be my dead bed
A fish in deep water swim over my head
Then she plunged her fair body in the waters so deep
She closed her blue eyes in the waters to sleep
I never will marry...
