Paroles de Banks of the Ohio

I asked my love to take a walk
.                G                  D
Just a walk a little way
.         D7              G
And as we walked along we talked
.                                          C
All about our wedding day
.        G    D                G

Only say that you'll be mine
And our home will happy be
Down beside where the waters flow
On the banks of the Ohio

I held a knife against his breast
As into my arms he pressed
She cried "Oh Willie, don't murder me
I'm not prepared for eternity"

I took her by her lily white hand
Led her down where the water stands
Then I pushed her in to drown
And watched her as she floatted down

I started home between twelve and one
I cried, "My God, what I have done"
I murdered the only woman I loved
Because she would not be my bride

The very next day about half passed four
The sheriff's came knocking at my door
He said "Young man come with me and go
Down to the banks of the Ohio"
