"Ada" as written by and Chris Phillip Bathgate....
“Ada, Ada why’d you kill your love?
Did he cause you pain, did he cause you harm?”

“Ada, Ada why’d you kill your love?
Did you find him in another’s arms?”

“Well, Jonah, that man was not my love,
my heart belongs to another one.”

“Jonah can’t you see? I killed that man to marry me.”

“Ada, you silly little thing,
they’re gonna hang you from the highest tree.”

“Ada, what you gonna do now?
The sheriff’s come to your willow grounds.”

“Jonah, my love, please,
take my hand and run with me.”

“Ada, your task I can’t perform;
there’s a sheriff standing at your door.”

“Jonah my love kiss me now
before I’m lying in the ground.”

“Ada, I kiss you thrice this day,
twice your lips and once your grave.”
