Omie Wise: America’s Oldest Murder Ballad
Oh, listen to my story, I’ll tell you no lies
How John Lewis did murder poor little Omie Wise
Follow us 200 years into the past, to a North Carolina river bank, where we’ll dig up the roots of America’s first murder ballad.
Song: “Omie Wise”, traditional
Researched, written, scored, and produced by Mr. and Mrs. Hall of Welcome Little Stranger.
