Banks Of The Ohio

Johnny Cash

 GD
I asked my love, to take a walk
 G
Take a walk, just a little ways,
 C
And as we walked, along  we talked
 GDG
Of when would be,   our wedding day.

Chorus:
 GD
And only say, that you'll be mine,
 G
In no o  thers arms entwined,
 C
Down beside where the waters flow,
 GDG
Down by the banks of the Ohio.

Verse 2:
 GD
I asked her if she'd marry me,
 G
And my wife forever be,
 C
She only turned her head away
 GDG
And had no other words to say.

Chorus.

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

verse 4 :

 GD
I took her by her golden curls,
 G
And drug her down to the riverside,
 C
And there I pushed her into drown,
 GDG
And I watched her as she floated down.

Chorus.

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

Chorus.
