"Down by the Riverside" as written by and Billy/rich Sherrill....
I met my little bright-eyed doll
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
Down by that riverside
I met my little bright-eyed doll
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside

Well, I asked her for a little kiss
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
Down by that riverside
i asked her for a little kiss
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside

She said: "Have patience, little man
I'm sure you'll understand
I hardly know you're name,"
I said: "If I can have my way
Maybe some sweet day
My name and yours will be the same,"

I'd wed my little bright-eyed doll
Down by the riverside
Way down by the riverside
Down by that riverside

I'd wed my little bright-eyed doll
Down by the riverside
Way down by the riverside
Down by that riverside

She said: "Have patience, little man
I'm sure you'll understand
I hardly know you're name,"
I said: "If I can have my way
Maybe some sweet day
My name and yours will be the same,"

I'd wed my little bright-eyed doll
Down by the riverside
Way down by the riverside
Down by that riverside

I'd wed my little bright-eyed doll
Down by the riverside
Way down by the riverside
Down by that riverside
