I met a little girl in Knoxville, a town we all know well 
    D                         E7              A  
And every Sunday evening, out in her home I'd dwell 
   D                             G                D 
We went to take an evening walk about a mile from town 
  D                                    A                      D  
I picked a stick up off the ground and knocked that fair girl down 
She fell down on her bended knees for mercy she did cry 
Oh Willy dear don't kill me here, I'm unprepared to die 
She never spoke another word, I only beat her more 
Until the ground around me within her blood did flow 
I took her by her golden curls and I drug her ?round and around 
Throwing her into the river that flows through Knoxville town 
Go down, go down, you Knoxville girl with the dark and rolling eyes 
Go down, go down, you Knoxville girl, you can never be my bride 
I started back to Knoxville, got there about midnight 
My Mother she was worried and woke up in a fright 
Saying 'Dear son, what have you done to bloody your clothes so? 
I told my anxious Mother, I was bleeding at my nose 
I called for me a candle to light myself to bed 
I called for me a hankerchief to bind my aching head 
Rolled and tumbled the whole night throught, as troubles was for me 
Like flames of hell around my bed and in my eyes could see 
They carried me down to Knoxville and put me in a cell 
My friends all tried to get me out but none could go my bail 
I'm here to waste my life away down in this dirty old jail 
Because I murdered that Knoxville girl, the girl I loved so well
