Ommie Wise Lyrics


Ommie Wise - Preston Young

I'll tell you all a story about ommie wise


How she was deluded by john lewis's lies


He told her to meet him at adams's spring


He'd bring her some money

And some other fine things

He brought her no money

Nor no other fine things

But get up behind me ommie

To squire elletts we'll go


She got up behind him so carefully we'll go


They rode till they came where deep waters did flow


John lewis he concluded to tell her his mind

John lewis he concluded to leave her behind


She threw her arms around him

John spare me my life

And I'll go distracted and never be your wife


He threw her arms from around him

And into the water she plunged

John lewis he turned around

And rode back to adams's hall


He went inquiring for ommie but

Ommie she is not here

She's gone to some neighbor's house

And won't be gone very long


John lewis was took a prisoner

And locked up in the jail

Was locked up in the jail around

Was there to remain a while

John lewis he stayed there

For six months or maybe more


Until he broke jail into the army he did go
