banks of ohio   Joan Baez

Banks of Ohio - Joan Beaz

	    C                               G7                  C
I asked my love, to take a walk, to take a walk, just a little walk.
	C7                     F                C    G7        C
Down beside where the waters flow, down by the banks of the Ohio.

		  C                   G7
	And only say, that you'll be mine.
	In no others arms entwine.
		C7                     F
	Down beside where the waters flow,
		     C    G7        C
	down by the banks of the Ohio.

I held a knife against her breast, as into my arms she pressed.
Willie, oh Willie, don't murder me, I'm not prepared for eternity.

	And only say, that you'll be mine....

I started home 'twixt tvvelve and one, crying my god, what have I done?
Killed the only woman I loved, because she would not be my bride.

	And only say, that you'll be mine....
Sergio Baptista Salgueiro
