1.

G D / / G C / / One day as I rambled - - down by the sea-shore, C G / / D G / / The wind it did whistle - - and the waves they did roar. G D / / G C / / I heard a fair maiden - - make a pitiful sound, C G / / D G / / | It sounded so lonesome - - on the waters a-round.

chorus:

G D / / G C / / I never will marry - - I'll be no man's wife, C G / / D G / / I ex-pect to live single - - all the days of my life. G D / / G C / / The shells in the ocean - - shall be my death bed, C G / / D G / / | The fish in deep water - - swim over my head.

2.

My love's gone and left me, the one I adore, She's gone where I never will see her anymore. She plunged her fair body in the waters so deep, She closed her pretty blue eyes in the waters to sleep.

chorus:
