|Titel:||The banks of ohio|
I asked my love to come with me,
to take walk, Just a little walk,
down beside where the waters flow,
a long the banks of the Ohio.
And only say that you'll be mine,
in no others arms en twine, down
beside where the waters flow a long
the banks of the Ohio.
I held a knife against his breast,
as into my arms he gently pressed,
He cried" My love don't you murder me,
I'm unprepared for eternity."
I started back home' tween twelve and one,
Crying, "my God, what have I done?
I've killed the only man I love,
Because I couldn't be his wife."
