I took my baby out and bought her a ring
Man, we planned a wedding come spring
Staring right into the eyes of my dreams
Hand in hand, down on one knee

[Chorus]
Down by the Riverside
Down by the Riverside
Told me she would be my bride
Down by the Riverside

She said yes as I held her tight
We made love in the broad daylight
Now I know why the old folks say
Get too close and you'll get swept away

[Chorus]

Spring came and turned by baby's head around
Rains fell and now I feel like I might drown
Under the weight of this fools crown

There's a tree down by the Riverside
Once it held it's head up high
We carved our vows deep in its side
Now faithless love makes that willow cry

[Chorus]

Her love turned out to be a lie
