    My love asked me, to take a walk
    Just to walk, a little way
    And as we walked along we talked
    Of when would be our wedding day

    We walked beneath the whispering pines
    His heart was filled with love divine
    And as we neared the riverside
    He asked me when I'd be his bride

    Oh no your bride, I'll never be
    Another one's prepared for me
    And as I drew my hand from his
    His heart was filled with fire divine

    He drew his knife across my breast
    And in his arms I gently pressed
    Willy dear, don't murder me
    For I am not prepared to die

    He took me by my golden curls
    He drug me down to the riverside
    And as he threw me into drown
    He watched me as I floated down

    He started home 'tween twelve and one
    Thinking on the deed he'd done
    Murdered just the one he loved
    Because I would not be his bride
