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
