Banks of the Ohio
Traditional - Townes Van Zandt, John Travolta & Olivia Newton John

I asked my(B)love to take a (F#7)walk
To take a walk, just a little (B)walk
Down beside where the waters (E)flow
Down by the (B)banks (F#7)of the Ohi(B)o

And only say that you’ll be mine
In no others arm entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio

I held a knife against her breast
As into my arms she pressed
Willie, oh, Willie, don’t murder me
I’m not prepared for eternity

I started home twixt 12 and 1
Crying: My god what have I done!
Killed the only woman I love
Because she would not be my bride
