[1st verse:]
           G               D
I asked my love, to take a walk
                      G
Take a walk, just a little ways,
                            C
And as we walked, along  we talked
              G    D            G
Of when would be,   our wedding day.
 
 
[Chorus]
         G                   D
And only say, that you'll be mine,
                         G
In no o  thers arms entwined,
                             C
Down beside where the waters flow,
            G    D          G
Down by the banks of the Ohio.
 
 
[Verse]
            G              D
I asked her if she'd marry me,
                    G
And my wife forever be,
                          C
She only turned her head away
           G  D           G
And had no other words to say.
 
 
[Chorus]
         G                   D
And only say, that you'll be mine,
                         G
In no o  thers arms entwined,
                             C
Down beside where the waters flow,
            G    D          G
Down by the banks of the Ohio.
 
 
[Verse]
            G              D
I plunged a knife into her breast,
                              G
And told her she was going to rest,
                                   C
She cried 'Oh Willie, don't murder me,
        G       D           G
I'm not prepared for eternity.'
 
 
[Verse]
 
           G             D
I took her by her golden curls,
                              G
And drug her down to the riverside,
                            C
And there I pushed her into drown,
                  G D            G
And I watched her as she floated down.
 
 
[Chorus]
         G                   D
And only say, that you'll be mine,
                         G
In no o  thers arms entwined,
                             C
Down beside where the waters flow,
            G    D          G
Down by the banks of the Ohio.
 
 
[Verse]
          G                       D
And going home between twelve and one,
                                G
And cried 'Oh Lord, What have I done,
                            C
I've killed the only girl I love,
            G    D          G
Because she would not marry me.
 
 
[Chorus]
         G                   D
And only say, that you'll be mine,
                         G
In no o  thers arms entwined,
                             C
Down beside where the waters flow,
            G    D          G
Down by the banks of the Ohio.
