Knoxville Girl
recorded by Stonewall Jackson  [3/4 time]
C                                  F                C
I met a little girl in Knoxville a town we all know well
                             D7              G7
And every Sunday evening out in her home I'd dwell
   C                            F                 C
We went to take an evening walk about a mile from town
                                       G7                     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
