Poor Omie
9 The screams of poor Omie Followed after him so nigh, Saying: I am a poor rebel Not fitten to die.
10 She was missing one evening, Next morning was found In the bottom of Siloty Below the mill dam.
ii Up stepped old Miss Mother, These words she did say : James Luther has killed Omie And he has run away.
12   He has gone to Elk River, So I understand,
They have got him in prison For killing a man.
13   They have got him in Ireland, Bound to the ground ;
And he wrote his confession And sent it around.
14   Go hang me or kill me, For I am the man
That drowned little Omie Below the mill dam.
