    "He Never Came Back" Lyrics

    Carter Family

    An old Jane about 49 came in to view the town
    She registered up at Smith's Hotel as Miss Ada Brown
    She said she was just 25 and that she was in love
    With a young lad about 16, she called him her turtledove

    The wedding day at last arrived, the birds did merrily sing
    He touched her up for a hundred to go out and buy the ring

    He never came back, no, he never came back
    He's been gone for a year or more
    That sassy young thing better have that ring
    When we meet on that beautiful shore

    I went down to a restaurant as hungry as a bear
    And a raving thief I did, I grabbed the bill of fare
    The waiter said, now what for you, a piece of steak, I said
    He taken my order and bowed his head and slowly walked away
