  • I sat down by the sea and it whispered to me
    It brought back an old love affair that used to be
    It told me that you had found someone new
    And left me to cry over you

    Whispering sea, rolling by why don't you listen to me cry?
    I cry as though my heart has broke in two
    Oh, how I love him so, no one will ever know
    No one but the drifting, whispering sea

    Well, I thought I'd left behind all his love but I was blind
    I should have known that there was no use to pretend
    I thought a new love I would find, and you would never cross my mind
    But the whispering sea, it talked to me

    Whispering sea, rolling by why don't you listen to me cry
    I cry as though my heart has broke in two
    Oh, how I love him so, no one will ever know
    No one but the drifting, whispering sea
    No one but the drifting, whispering sea Writer/s: LORETTA LYNN
