DOLLY PARTON - Banks Of The Ohio Lyrics

I’m waiting to his prison cell
To write his story if he’d tell
He spoke and tears fell from his eyes
And he told me when and where and why
And he said:I asked my love to take a walk
Just to walk a little
And as we walked,then we could talk
About our future wedding day
But when she said she couldn’t be mine
Well I held a knife against her breast
Asking to my arms as she pressed
She cried:My love,don’t murder me
Cause I’m not a pair for eternity
They only say that you be mine
And in your world is arms and crime
Then decide where the waters flows
Down by the banks of the Ohio

I started it home to…
I cried my girl…
I killed the one I loved too much
Because she would not be my bride
We’ll only say that you’ll mine
And in your world is arms and crime
Down decide where the water flows
Down by the banks of the Ohio
Down by the banks of the Ohio

Sing my song,Lord ,sing my song
Then decide where the water flows
Down by the banks of the Ohio
