Be on my side I'll be on your side, baby
There is no reason for you to hide,
This much madness is too much sorrow,
It's impossible to make it today,
Hey, hey, ooh-ooh

She could drag me over the rainbow,
Send me away.

Down by the river
I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, shot her dead.

You take my hand, I'll take your hand,
Together we may get away.
