No Other's Bride I'll Be

 

Just one [D]year ago [A]today love

I [A7]became your happy [D]bride

Changed a [D7]mansion for a [G]cottage

To [A]live by the river [D]side

 

You [D]told me I'd be [A]happy

But no [A7]happiness I [D]see

For [D7]tonight I am a [G]widow

In the [A]cottage by the [D]sea

 

All [D]alone by the seaside he [A]left me

And no [A7]other's bride [D]I'll be

For in [D7]bridal flowers he [G]begged me

In the [A]cottage by the [D]sea

+ instrumental = CHORUS

 

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

+ D - G - A - D      + repeat CHORUS
