I Have No One To Love Me

It was [A]on last Sunday [D]evening
Just [A]about the hour of [E]three
When my [A]darling started to [D]leave me
And [A]sail on the [E]deep blue [A]sea

instrumental = verse 1

He promised to write me a letter,
He promised to write to me;
And I haven't heard from my darling,
Who is sailing on the deep blue sea.

instrumental = verse 2

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

instrumental = verse 3

"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."

instrumental = verse 4

Farewell to friends and relations .
This is the last you'll see of me,
I'm going to end my troubles
By drowning in the deep blue sea.
 instrumental = verse 5
