Intro: A#m  
    
                           G#                   A#m
Come listen to my story, I'll tell you no lies, how John Lewis did murder a 

Fm          A#m
little Omie Wise,

                            G#              A#m
He asked her to meet him at Adams's spring, said he'd bring her money and 

F          A#m
other fine things,

                            G#                 A#m              A#      F
So fool-like she met him at Adams's spring, no money he brought her nor other

      A#m
 fine things

A#m          A#          A#m              G#                    A#m
        John Lewis, John Lewis, won't you tell me your mind, do you intend to 

            F          A#m
marry me or leave me behind?

                                 G#                   A#m
Little Omie, Little Omie, I will tell you my mind, my plan is to drown you 

    Fm        A#m
and leave you behind,

                          G#                     A#m
Have mercy on my baby and spare me my life, I'll go home as a beggar and

never be your wife

        He hugged her and he kissed her and turned her around and threw her 

                       Fm                  A#m
in deep water where he knew that she would drown,

                                   G#                              A#m
It was on one Thursday morning the rain came pouring down and they searched 

                       F                A#m
for Omie's body but it nowhere could be found,

                            G#                       A#m
Two boys went a fishin' one fine summer day and they saw little Omie's body 

   Fm        A#m
go floating away

A#m                                   G#                    A#m
        They called for John Lewis to come to that place so he could see her 

         Fm                 A#m
body and they could see his face,

                                  G#                    A#m
Though he made no confession they threw him in jail, no friend nor relation 

      F         A#m
would go on his bail
