Down by the riverside

Lyrics:
Verse:
I’m gonna lay down my burden,
down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I’m gonna lay down my burden,
down by the riverside,
I’m gonna study war no more

Chorus:
I ain’t a gonna study war no more,

Verses:
Well, I’m gonna put on my long white robe,
(Where?) down by the riverside (Oh)
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I’m gonna put on my long white robe,
(Where?) down by the riverside
I’m gonna study war no more

Well, I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield,
(Where?) down by the riverside
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield,
(A-ha) down by the riverside
I’m gonna study war no more

I’m gonna lay down my heavy load
I’m gonna lay down my travelin’ shoes
I’m gonna lay down my gun and belt
I’m gonna put on my starry crown
