No Other’s Bride I’ll Be

print

Just one year ago today love
I became your happy bride
Changed a mansion for a cottage
To live by the river side

You told me I’d be happy
But no happiness I see
For tonight I am a widow
In the cottage by the sea

   All alone by the seaside he left me
   And no other’s bride I’ll be
   For in bridal flowers he begged me
   In the cottage by the sea

From my cottage by the seaside
I can see my mansion home
I can see those hills and valleys
Where with pleasure I have roamed

The last time that I saw him
Oh how happy then were we
But tonight I am a widow
In the cottage by the sea
