 Lyrics:


 

 
 -------

 


 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've found


 That blue eyed girl (that blue eyed girl)


 She said "no more" (she said "no more")


 And that blue eyed girl (that blue eyed girl)


 Became blue eyed whore (big blue eyed whore)


 Down by the water (down by the water)


 I took her hand (I took her hand)


 Just like my daughter (just like my daughter)


 See her again (see her again)


 


 [strings bit] 


 


 [pizzicato bit] 


 


 Oh help me Jesus


 Come through the storm


 I had to lose her


 To do her harm


 I heard her holler (I heard her holler)


 I heard her moan (I heard her moan)


 My lovely daughter (My lovely daughter)


 I took her home (I took her home)


 


 [twinkly bit] 


 


 Little fish, Big fish, swimming in the water, \ x8


 Come back here, man, gimme my daughter. /

 Hello again Olgaperson,


 


 I made a slight timing mistake on part of this song. What follows is the


 correct version. I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused


 y'all :) It can't be easy replacing heaps of slightly mistaken tabs and


 crds :)


 


 Cheers,
