   John Lewis did     mur  - der  poor   little   Omie      Wise.

 
[Verse 2]

   Am                      G                    
He told her to meet him at Adams's Springs.
   Am                     Em         Am
He promised her money and other fine things.


[Verse 3]

    Am                       G
So, fool-like she met him at Adams's Springs.
   Am                       Em         Am
No money he brought her nor other fine things.


[Verse 4]

 Am                            G
"Go with me, little Omie, and away we will go.
      Am                     Em          Am
We'll go and get married and no one will know."


[Verse 5]

    Am                         G
She climbed up behind him and away they did go,
    Am                     Em          Am
But off to the river where deep waters flow.


[Verse 6]

 Am                               G
"John Lewis, John Lewis, will you tell me your mind?
   Am                        Em         Am
Do you intend to marry me or leave me behind?"


[Verse 7]

 Am                             G
"Little Omie, little Omie, I'll tell you my mind.
   Am                       Em          Am
My mind is to drown you and leave you behind."

[Verse 8]

 Am                        G
"Have mercy on my baby and spare me my life,
     Am                      Em            Am
I'll go home as a beggar and never be your wife."


[Verse 9]

   Am                            G
He kissed her and hugged her and turned her around,
     Am                                 G                   Am
Then pushed her in deep waters where he knew that she would drown.


[Verse 10]

   Am                   G
He got on his pony and away he did ride,
       Am                          Em          Am
As the screams of little Omie went down by his side.


[Verse 11]

Am                               G
T'was on a Thursday morning, the rain was pouring down,
         Am                            Em              Am
When the people searched for Omie but she could not be found.


[Verse 12]

Am                          G
Two boys went a-fishin' one fine summer day,
    Am                        Em        Am
And saw little Omie's body go floating away.

[Verse 13]

Am                                  G
They threw their net around her and drew her to the bank.
    Am                              Em            Am
Her clothes all wet and muddy, they laid her on a plank.


[Verse 14]

Am                          G
Then sent for John Lewis to come to that place --
    Am                                 Em               Am
And brought her out before him so that he might see her face.


[Verse 15]

   Am                          G
He made no confession but they carried him to jail,
   Am                          Em        Am
No friends nor relations would go on his bail.
