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
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
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
