Come all you young people
And stand close around
And listen to the story
How Lulie Vars got drowned

She loved this young John Collier
Engaged to be his wife
He ruined her reputation
And then he took her life

They went to Elk Horn City
About 60 miles away
He promised they would marry
And their secret it would stay

They went out for a little walk
Hand in hand they strolled
In the middle of December
And the wind was blowing cold

They walked down by the river
Still water it runs deep
She could tell by the way he looked at her
In the bottom she would sleep

She threw her arms around him
Begging for her life
I'll go back to my mother
If I can't be your wife

Poor Lulie she went missing
Nowhere could be found
They searched the country over
For miles and miles around

John Collier joined the army
4 months came and passed
In the bottom of that river
Her body was found at last

They took her from the river
To a nearby town
That railroad still around her neck
Weighed about thirty pounds

When Lulie's mother got the news
She was sitting in her home
She quickly left her chair
To bring her baby home

John Collier was arrested
Locked behind the bars
He'll spend his whole life paying
For the murder of Lulie Vars
