Down by the Water - don't go!

I was instantly taken with this song the first time I heard it. Not just for the hypnotic rhythm, plucky strings, and haunting ending but also for the story the lyrics told. Would make a very creepy little movie...

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 found
That blue eyed girl
She said "no more"
That blue eyed girl
Became blue eyed whore
Down by the water
I took her hand
Just like my daughter
I'll see her again

Oh help me Jesus
Come through this storm
I had to lose her
To do her harm
I heard her holler
I heard her moan
My lovely daughter
I took her home

Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water
Come back here and gimme my daughter
Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water
Come back here and gimme my daughter
