Irish Music - The Banks of the Ohio Lyrics

rate me

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 Ohio

(Chorus)

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 Ohio

I held a knife against her breast

As into my arms she pressed

She cried "Oh Willie, don't murder me

For I am unprepared for eternity"

(Chorus)

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

(Chorus)

Down by the banks of the Ohio
