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 Fm A#m never be your wife

A#m G# A#m 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 __________________________________________________________ Example of picking patten for this song:
