I met a little girl in Knoxvillea town we all know well And every Sunday evening, out in her home, I'd dwell We went to take an evening walk about a mile from town 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 Housewives wants hot sex Clear Creek never be my bride I started back to Knoxville, got there about midnight My mother, she was worried and woke Wives wants hot sex Center Strafford in a fright Saying "dear son, what have you done to bloody your clothes so?
