Banks of Ohio - Joan Beaz

	    C                               G7                  C
I asked my love, to take a walk, to take a walk, just a little walk.
	C7                     F                C    G7        C
Down beside where the waters flow, down by the banks of the Ohio.

		  C                   G7
	And only say, that you'll be mine.
			      C
	In no others arms entwine.
		C7                     F
	Down beside where the waters flow,
		     C    G7        C
	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.

	And only say, that you'll be mine....

I started home 'twixt tvvelve and one, crying my god, what have I done?
Killed the only woman I loved, because she would not be my bride.

	And only say, that you'll be mine....

About the artist behind Banks Of Ohio Chords:

Joan Chandos Baez (born in Staten Island, NYC, USA, on January 9, 1941, to Mexican and British parents) is an American folk singer and songwriter known for her highly individual vocal style. She is a soprano with a three-octave vocal range[1] and a distinctively rapid vibrato. Many of her songs are topical and deal with social issues.

She is best known for her hit "Diamonds & Rust" and her covers of Phil Ochs's "There But For Fortune" as well as The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", and to a lesser extent,"We Shall Overcome," "Love Is Just A Four-Letter Word" and "Farewell Angelina", as well as, "Sweet Sir Galahad," and "Joe Hill" (songs she performed at the 1969 Woodstock festival). She is also well known due to her early and long-lasting relationship with Bob Dylan and her even longer-lasting passion for activism, notably in the areas of nonviolence, civil and human rights and, in more recent years, the environment. She has performed publicly for nearly 50 years, released over 30 albums and recorded songs in at least eight languages. She is considered a folk singer although her music has strayed from folk considerably after the 1960s, encompassing everything from rock and pop to country and gospel. Although a songwriter herself, especially in the mid-1970s, Baez is most often regarded as an interpreter of other people's work, covering songs by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jackson Browne, Paul Simon, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and myriad others. In more recent years, she has found success interpreting songs of diverse songwriters such as Steve Earle, Natalie Merchant and Ryan Adams.
