Banks of the Ohio

I asked my love to take a walk
Just a little ways with me
And as we walked, we'd have a talk
About our coming wedding day.

(chorus)
And darling say, that you'll be mine
In no other arms entwine,
Down beside where the waters flow
On the banks of the Ohio

I took her by her pretty white hand
Led her down that bank of sand
I pushed her in where she would drown
Lord, I saw her as, she floated down

(chorus)
And darling say, that you'll be mine
In no other arms entwine,
Down beside where the waters flow
On the banks of the Ohio

Returning home about twelve or one
Thinking "Lord, what have I done?"
I killed the girl, I love you see
Because she would not marry me

(chorus)
And darling say, that you'll be mine
In no other arms entwine,
Down beside where the waters flow
On the banks of the Ohio

The very next day at half past four
The sheriff walked right to my door
He said "Young man, don't you try to run
You'll pay for this aw--ful crime you've done"

(chorus)
