Album: Keep On The Sunny Side (1963)
Orig.: G

            G             D7
I asked my love to take a walk
         D             G
Just to walk a little way
          G7                C
And as we walked, along we talked
              G  D7           G
Of when would be our wedding day

          G                    D7
And only s[G]ay that you'll be mine
      D               G
In no others arms entwined
       G7                      C
Down beside where the waters flow
             G    D7        G
Down by the banks of the Ohio

              G             D7
I plunged a knife into her breast
       D                         G
And I told her she was going to rest
             G7                   C
Crying sweet Willie, don't murder me!
            G    D7        G
I'm not prepared for eternity.“

          G                 D7
And only say that you'll be ]mine
      D               G
In no others arms entwined
       G7                      C
Down beside where the waters flow
             G    D7        G
Down by the banks of the Ohio

           G             D7
I took her by her golden curls
              D                 G
And drug her down to the river-side
              G7             C
And there I threw her into drown
                  G  D7           G
And I watched her as she floated down

          G                 D7
And only say that you'll be mine
      D               G
In no others arms entwined
       G7                      C
Down beside where the waters flow
             G    D7        G
Down by the banks of the Ohio

            G                     D7
He's going home 'tween twelve and one
         D                    G
Crying „Lord, what have I've done
             G7                                 C
Oh Lord I've murdered the only girl I ever did love
             G    D7           G
Because she would ]not be my bride“

          G                 D7
And only say that you'll be mine
      D               G
In no others arms entwined
       G7                      C
Down beside where the waters flow
             G    D7        G
Down by the banks of the Ohio
