Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Banks Of The Ohio  Johnny Cash

I asked my [G]love, to take a [D]walk
Take a walk, just a li[G]ttle ways,
And as we walked, along  we [C]talked
Of when would [G]be,  [D] our wedding [G]day.
And only [G]say, that you'll be [D]mine,
In no o  thers arms entwi[G]ned,
Down beside where the waters [C]flow,
Down by the [G]banks[D] of the Ohi[G]o.

Verse 2:
I asked her [G]if she'd marry [D]me,
And my wife forever [G]be,
She only turned her head a[C]way
And had no [G]oth[D]er words to [G]say.


verse 3:
I plunged a [G]knife into her [D]breast,
And told her she was going to [G]rest,
She cried 'Oh Willie, don't murder [C]me,
I'm not [G]prepared[D] for eternit[G]y.'

verse 4 :

I took her [G]by her golden [D]curls,
And drug her down to the river[G]side,
And there I pushed her into [C]drown,
And I watched her [G]as[D] she floated [G]down.


Verse 5 :
And going [G]home between twelve and [D]one,
And cried 'Oh Lord, What have I [G]done,
I've killed the only girl I [C]love,
Because she [G]would[D] not marry [G]me.
