Michael Mcdonald – Down By The River lyrics
(Neil Young)

Be on my side, I'll be on your side baby
There's no reason for you to hide
It's so hard for me standin' here all alone
When you could be takin' me for a ride

Ooh la la la
She could drag me over the rainbow
And take 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 might get away
This much madness is too much sorrow
It's impossible to make it today

Ooh la la la
She could drag me over the rainbow
And take 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's no reason for you to hide
It's so hard for me standin' here all alone
When you could be takin' me for a ride

Ooh la la la
She could drag me over the rainbow
And take me away

Down by the river
I shot my baby
