Sung by Mrs. Miner Griffin
I promised to meet you at Adam's Spring,
And bring you some money and other fine thing;
I brought you no money for to reason the case;
Let's go and get married, there'll be no disgrace.
Gome get up behind me and away we will ride
Till we come to yonder city and I'll make you my bride
She got up behind me and away we did go,
Till we came to deep waters with islands o'erflowed.
Little Oni, little Oni, I will tell you my mind;
My mind is to drown you and leave you behind.
Jim Lewis, Jim Lewis, oh, spare me my life,
And let me be a beggar if I can't be your wife.
No mercy, no mercy, no mercy, said I,
In the bottom of the river your body must lie.
He sailed cross the ocean till he reached the far side
Then he thought of little Oni and the way she had died
He wrote his confessions and sent them around,
To the friends of little Oni, where she might be found
Come shoot me or hang me, for I am the man,
That drowned little Oni in the waters so grand.
