The Carter Family - I Have No-One To Love Me lyrics

It was on last Sunday evening
Just about the hour of three
When my darling started leaving
To sail on that deep blue sea

He promised to write a letter
He promised to write to me
And I haven't heard from my darling
Who sails on that deep blue sea

My mother is dead and buried
My papa's forsaken me
And I have no one to love me
But the sailor on the deep blue sea

Oh, Captain, can you tell me
Can you tell me where he may be
Oh, yes, my little maiden
He's drownded in the deep blue sea

Farewell to friends and relations
It's the last you'll see of me
I'm going to end my trouble
By drowning in the deep blue sea
