I Never Will Marry

I never will marry I'll be no man's wife
I intend to live single all the days of my life

Some say that love is a gentle thing
It only has brought me pain
And the only boy I ever loved
Is gone on the midnight train
I never will marry etc.

Your company your company
Your company unto me
It makes me feel wile I'm away
That every day is three
I never will marry etc.

You'll see the grass whereon you
Arise and grow again
But love it is a killin thing
Did you ever feel the pain
I never will marry etc.

I wish my heart were made of glass
Wherein you might behold
All the wonders of my love
The letters are writ in gold
I never will marry etc.
