Joan Baez – Banks Of The Ohio lyrics

I asked my love to take A walk,
To take A walk, just A little walk,
Down beside where the waters flow,
Down by the banks of the old ohio
.

And only say that you'Ll be mine
In no others arms entwine,
Down beside where the waters flow,
Down by the banks of the old ohio.

I held A knife against her brest
As ino my arms she pressed,
She cried, "oh, willie, don'T murder me,
I'M not prepeared for eternity. "

And only say that you'Ll be mine
In no others arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the old ohio

I started home 'Tween twelve and one,
I cried, "my god, what have I done?
Killed the only woman I loved,
Because she would not be my bride. "


And only say that you'Ll be mine
In no others arms entwine,
Down beside where the waters flow,
Down by the banks of the old ohio.
