Knoxville Girl recorded by Stonewall Jackson [3/4 time] C
C I met a little girl in Knoxville a town we all know well
G7 And every Sunday evening out in her home I'd dwell
C We went to take an evening walk about a mile from town
C I picked a stick up off the ground and knocked that fair girl down She fell down on her bended knees for mercy she did cry Saying Willie dear don't kill me here I'm unprepared to die She never spoke another word I only beat her more Until the ground around me with in her blood did flow I took her by her golden curls and I dragged her round and round Throwing her into the river that flows through Knoxville town Go down go down you Knoxville girl with the big and rovin' eyes Go down go down you Knoxville girl you can never be my bride I started back to Knoxville got there about midnight My mother she was worried and woke up in a fright Sayin' son oh son what have you done too bloody your clothes so I told my anxious mother I was bleeding at my nose I called for me a candle to light myself to bed I called for me a handkerchief to bind my aching head Tossed and tumbled the whole night thru as troubles were for me Like flames of hell around my bed for in my eyes could see They carried me down to Knoxville and put me in a cell My friends all tried to get me out but none could go my bail I'm here to spend my life away down in this dirty old jail Because I murdered that Knoxville girl the girl I loved so well
