On The Banks Of The Ohio

I ask my love to take a walk
to take a walk just a little walk
down beside where the water flows
down by the banks of the Ohio.

Then only say that you´ll be mine
in no other arms in twine
down beside where the water flows
down by the banks of the Ohio.

I held a knife against her breast
as into my arms she pressed
she cried my Llorddon´t you murder me
I´m not prepared for eternity.

And only say that you´ll be mine
in no other arms in twine
down beside where the water flows
down by the banks of the Ohio.

I started home tween tvelwe and one
I cried my God what have I done
I´ve killed the only women I loved
because she would not to be my bride.

And only say that you´ll be mine
in no other arm in twine
down beside where the water flows
down by the banks of the Ohio.

And only say that you´ll be mine
in no other arm in twine
down beside where the water flows
down by the banks of the Ohio.

Down by the banks of the Ohio.
