In Scotlands coloured past many widows were made and chidren fatherless by young men going off to war. Many young women who had fallen in love with a handsome young warrier would refuse to marry him until he had returned safe from war and retired from fighting forever.In this song that story is told and the pain and hurt and hope in the heart of the young woman and her lover.


I NEVER WILL MARRY A SOLDIER
CHORUS
OH I NEVER WILL MARRY A SOLDIER,
A SOLDIERS WIFE I'LL NOT BE,
OH I NEVER WILL MARRY A SOLDIER,
A SOLDIER SHALL NEVER ENJOY ME.
1
OH I NEVER WILL MARRY - A FINE YOUNG SOLDIER,
I NEVER WILL MARRY-THIS CAPTAIN TO BE,
NO I NEVER WILL GO WITH THIS HANDSOME SOLDIER,
ALTHOUGH HE'S WON THE HEART IN ME
CHORUS
2
ALTHOUGH I'LL WAVE HIM-GOODBYE IN THE MORNING,
AND I KNOW I MAY NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN,
ALTHOUGH MY HEART IS CLOSE TO BREAKING, I'LL HIDE MY TEARS AND MY PAIN.
CHORUS
3
HIS GOLDEN HAIR IN THE BREEZE WAS BLOWING,
MARCHING SO SADLY DOWN THE ROAD,
THOSE PROUD BLUE EYES-WITH TEARS OVERFLOWING,
A PAIN THAT BOTH OF US KNOWS.
CHORUS
4
SOMEDAY I HOPE WHEN THIS WAR IS OVER,
THAT FATE WILL HONOUR HIS PROMISE TO ME,
AND RETURN TO ME, HIS LOVE FOREVER,
THIS FINE YOUNG CAPTAIN TO BE
CHORUS
