down by the river lyrics – indigo girls

be on my side, i’ll be on your side
there is no reason for you to hide
it’s so hard, staying here all alone
you could be taking me for a ride

she could drag me over the rainbow
send me away
down by the river, i shot my baby
down by the river, dead

take my hand, i’ll take your hand, baby
together we may get away
this much madness is too much sorrow
it’s impossible to make it today, oh baby

she could drag me over the rainbow
send me away
down by the river, i shot my baby
down by the river, dead

be on my side, i’ll be on your side
baby, there ain’t no reason for us to hide
it’s so hard, staying here all alone
you should be taking me for a ride, oh baby

she could drag me over the rainbow
and send me away
down by the river, i shot my baby
down by the river, i shot my baby

you take my hand and i’ll take your hand baby
together we may get away
this much madness is too much sorrow
it’s impossible to make it today
this much madness is too much sorrow
it’s impossible to make it today
down by the river
