Waves on the Sea cho: Oh, the waves on the sea, how they roll And the chilly winds, how they do blow; My own true love got drownded in the deep And the ship never got to the shore. Oh the first on the deck was the porter of the ship And a rough-looking fellow was he; Says, " I care no more for my wife and my child Than I do for the fish in the sea." Well, I left my dear darling a-grieving (2x) Well, I left my dear darling a-grieving Well, I left my dear darling a-grieving after me For I never expect to see her any more. Child #289 Recorded by the Carter Family; also the New Lost City Ramblers note: A distant descendent of The Mermaid RG
