Johnny Cash - Banks Of The Ohio lyrics

I asked my love to take a walk Take a walk just a little ways And as we walked, along we talk All would be our wedding day And only say that you'll be mine In no others arms entwined Down beside where the waters flow Down by the banks of the Ohio I asked her if she'd marry me And my wife forever be She only turned her head away And had no other words to say And only say that you'll be mine In no others arms entwined Down beside where the waters flow Down by the banks of the Ohio I plunged a knife into her breast And told her she was going to rest She cried "Oh Willy, don't murder me I'm not prepared for eternity" I took her by her golden curls And drug her down to the river side And there I threw her into drown And I watched her as she floated down And only say that you'll be mine In no others arms entwined Down beside where the waters flow Down by the banks of the Ohio And going home between twelve and one I cried "Oh Lord, what have I've done?" I've k**ed the only girl I love Because she would not marry me And only say that you'll be mine In no others arms entwined Down beside where the waters flow Down by the banks of the Ohio
