Banks Of The Ohio Lyrics

I asked my love to go with me
And take a walk a little way
And as we walked and as we talked
About our golden wedding day

Then only say that you'll be mine
And in no other arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio

I asked your mother for you, dear
And she said you were too young
And only say that you'll be mine
And happiness in my home you'll find

I held a knife against your breast
And gently in my arms you pressed
Crying, "Baby, oh baby, don't murder me
I am unprepared for eternity"

Going down, going down, down, down, down
Going down, going down, down, down, down

I took you by your lily hand
And led you down where the waters stand
I picked you up and I pitched you in
And watched you as you floated down

I started home 'tween twelve and one
Crying, "My God, what have I done?
I've killed the only one that I ever loved
Because you would not marry me"

Then only say that you'll be mine
And in no other arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio

Then only say that you'll be mine
And in no other arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio

Going down, going down, down, down, down
