    Default Score for "I Never Will Marry"

    Does anyone have the mandolin tab or sheet music for the song "I Never Will Marry". The version I am looking for has the first line as "They say that love is a gentle thing, but is has only brought me pain. I think the music is the same as an old Irish tune but with different lyrics.
    This is the version I am looking for:

    Don't have sheet music but listening to the link:

    Chord progression sounds:
    in Bb , 3/4 time (duration of chords not indicated)

    intro, then,
    151
    451
    4516m
    151
    1514
    4151

    Hope that helps.

    I could figure it out by ear if I had a mandolin in my lap quicker than it's taking me to write this response Have you tried to learn it by ear? It's a good skill to develop if you have not tried before. Good luck, hopefully you find what you're looking for.

    Wow Linda R's voice always just reaches right inside and grabs me. It's sad that Parkinsons took away her singing voice.

    MusicNotes.com, and likely other sheet music places, has it in her original key, Bb. Usually the music there can be transposed before purchase, but I noticed this one is available in Bb only and does not come in a variety of styles (lead sheet, guitar, voice, etc.) $5.50 for the full score (you get to preview page 1.) You purchase, download then print. I'm riddled with tech debacles and even I can do it.
