Banks Of The Ohio
recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Maybelle Carter

G D7
I asked my love to take a walk
G
Take a walk just a little way
G7 C
And as we walked along we talked
G D7 G
Of when would be our wedding-day

D7
And only say that you'll be mine
G
In no others arms entwined
G7 C
Down beside where the waters flow
G D7 G
Down by the banks of the Ohio

D7
I asked her if she'd marry me
G
And my wife forever be
G7 C
She only turned her head away
G D7 G
And had no other words to say

Repeat #2

D7
I plunged a knife into her breast
G
And told her she was going to rest
G7 C
She cried oh Willy don't murder me
G D7 G
I'm not prepared for eternity

D7
I took her by her golden curls
G
And drug her down to the river-side
G7 C
And I there threw her in to drown
G D7 G
And I watched her as she floated down

Repeat #2

D7
And going home between twelve and one
G
I cried oh Lord what have I've done
G7 C
I've killed the only girl I love

G D7 G
Because she would not marry me

Repeat #2
