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,
