Knoxville Girl
Recorded by Stonewall Jackson
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 thought of how she cheated me so I knocked that fair girl down
                                      F             C
She fell down on her bended knees for mercy she did cry
                                     D7                G7
Oh please my dear don't kill me here I'm unprepared to die
    C                          F             C
She never spoke another word I only beat her more
                           G7                    C
Until the ground around me with in her blood did flow
                                     F                     C
I took her by her golden curls and I dragged her round and round
                                 D7                      G7
Throwing her into the river that flows through Knoxville town
   C                               F                        C  
Go down go down you Knoxville girl with the dark and rovin' eyes
                                   G7                  C
Go down go down you Knoxville girl you can never be my bride
                            F               C       
I started back to Knoxville got there about daylight
                              D7           G7              
My mother she was worried and woke up in a fright
       C                           F                       C
Sayin' dear son what have you done too bloody your clothes so
                         G7                   C
I told my anxious mother I was bleeding at my nose
                                   F                   C
They took me down to Knoxville and they locked me in a cell
                                       D7               G7   
My friends all tried to get me out but none could go my bail
    C                          F                      C    
I'm here to waste my life away down in this dirty old jail
                                         G7             C
Because I killed that Knoxville girl the one I loved so well
