[ Banks Of The Ohio - Olivia Newton John ]



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

I held a knife against his breast, as into my arms he pressed
He cried, "My love, don't you murder me, I'm not prepared for eternity"

I wandered home 'tween twelve and one, I cried, "My God, what have I done?
I've killed the only man I love, he would not take me for his bride"

[*]
And only say that you'll be mine, in no other's arms entwined
Down the side where the waters flow, down by the banks of the Ohio
Down by the banks of the Ohio
