Lyrics

DOWN BY THE WATER

I lost my heart
Under the bridge
To that little girl
So much to me
And now I moan
And now I holler
She'll never know
Just what I found

That blue eyed girl
She said ‘No more’
And that blue eyed girl
Became blue-eyed whore
Down by the water
I took her hand
My lovely daughter
I won’t see her again

Oh help me Jesus
Get through the storm
I had to lose her
To do her harm
I heard her holler
I heard her moan
My lovely daughter
I took her home

Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water.
Come back here, man, gimme my daughter.
