Banks of the Ohio

by Olivia Newton-John

I asked my love to take a walk
To take a walk, just a little walk
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio

Chorus :
And only say that you’ll be mine
In no other’s arms entwined
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio


I held a knife against his breath
As into my arms she pressed
She cried “my love, don’t you murder me”
I’m not prepared for eternity

Chorus

I wandered home tween twelve and one
I cried “My God, what have I done”
I’ve killed the only woman I loved
She would not take me for his bride

Chorus
