Banks of the Ohio Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
And only say that you'll be mine
In no others arms entwine,
Down beside where the waters flow,
Down by the banks of the Ohio
Verse 3
I held a knife against her breast,
And into my arms she pressed,
She cried, "Oh Willie, don't murder me
I'm not prepared for eternity."
Verse 4
And only say that you'll be mine
In no others' arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of Ohio
Verse 5
I started home 'tween twelve and one
I cried, "My God, what have I done?
I've killed the only woman I loved,
Because she would not be my bride,"
Verse 6
And only say that you'll be mine
In no others' arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of Ohio
