Banks Of the Ohio
Anglické písničky (směs)
1. I asked my love to take a walk
just a walk a little way
as we walked along we talked
G D G
all about our wedding day.

and our home will happy be
down beside where the waters flow
G D G
down by the banks of the Ohio.
2. I held a knife close to her breast
as into my arms she pressed
she cried: oh Willie don't murder me
I'm not prepared for eternity.
3. I took her by her lily white hand
led her down where the waters stand
there I pushed her into drown
and watched her as she floated down.
4. I started home 'tween twelve and one
I cried: my God what have I done
I murdered the only woman I loved
because she would not be my bride.
5. The very next morning about half-past four
the sheriff came knocking at my door
he said: young man come with me and go
down to the banks of the Ohio.
