lyrics

I asked my love to take a walk
Just a little walk along the way
And as we walked along we talked
about our coming wedding day

Just 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 took her by her pretty white hand
I laid her down that bank of sand
Pushed her in where I knew she'd drown
And I watched her as she floated down

Just 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

Was comin' home 'tween twelve and one
So sorry for the deed I'd done
I killed the girl I love, you see
'cause she wouldn't marry me

Just only say that you'll be mine
And in our home we'll happy be
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the Banks of the Ohio
