"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

My dad and his guitar

I grew up listening to my dad playing the guitar. He was often plucking out one tune or another. My dad was also a fan of Linda Ronstadt. One day he started playing "I Never Will Marry". We had heard this song many times as he listened to it on the record player. As he played, one sister and I began to sing along. My sister sang the melody and I sang back up. We thought we sounded really good. We put our hearts into the song as we sang it. We practiced a bit with our dad and talked about singing in front of an audience.

Then one day my dad quit playing the song and all our begging and pleading would not change his mind. He reasoned that we were just way too convincing with the words. I guess he thought we might believe the words we sang.

Here are the words to that beautiful song.

I Never Will Marry

They say that love’s
a gentle thing
But it’s only brought me pain
For the only man I ever loved
Has gone on the morning train


I never will marry
I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single
All the days of my life.

Well the train pulled out,
the whistle blew
He’s gone, he’s gone,
like the morning dew

And left me all alone.


I never will marry
I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single
All the days of my life.

Well there’s many a change
in the winter wind
And a change in the cloud’s design
There’s many a change
in a young man’s heart

But never a change in mine


I never will marry
I’ll be no man’s wife
I expect to live single
All the days of my life.
