I asked my love to take a walk  To take a walk just a little old walk
        A7                    D                A           E    A
Down beside where the waters flow down by the banks of the O-hi-o

Chorus:
          A                  E                       A
And only say that you'll be mine In no other arms en-twine

Down beside where the waters flow Down by the banks of the O-hi-o

I held a knife against her breast as into my arms she pressed.

I started home 'tween twelve and one I cried, "My God, what have I done?
            A7            D                  A       E      A
Killed the only woman I loved, because she would not be my bride."
