Down along the cove
I spied my true love comin' my way, whoa yes I did
Down along the cove
I say I spied my true love comin' my way to, whoa yes I did
I say, Lord, have mercy, mama
Sure is good to see you comin' today, oh my.

Down along the cove
I spied my little bundle of joy, my little bundle of joy
Down along the cove
I spied my little bundle of joy
She said, Lord, have mercy, honey
I'm sure glad you my boy, oh how bout this, everybody

Down along the cove
I tell you we walked together hand in hand, whoa yes it was
Ohhh down along the cove
We walked together hand in hand
Ev'rybody watchin' us go by baby
Knows we're in love, yes, and we understand.
Down along the cove baby
I spied my true love coming my way, coming, coming my way
Ohh down along the cove
I tell you I spied her coming my way, my way
I say lord have mercy honey
Sure is good to seen ya coming today
I just a boy living down the way
Just a boy, just a boy
