Black Swampy Water

This song is by Elf and appears on the album Trying to Burn the Sun (1975).

Back in the wood where it's good
And the days are yeah long
Well I saw me a child, she was wild
Like a lady going all wrong

Dark as the night, she was right
For a little conversation
So I pulled her right in and she said
She had some imagination

Black swampy water
That's where I caught her
Black swampy water
Black swampy water

We didn't speak, felt weak
Got tangled up in her hair
So we lay in the grass, what a gas
You can't know that you were there

So then I let it all go, what a show
Was like blowing up a freight train
Then around the world I would go
Like jumping on a jet plane

I'm in black swampy water
That's where I caught her
Black swampy water
Ooh, what I taught her

Back in the wood where it's good
And the days are yeah long
Well I saw me a child, she was wild
Like a lady going all wrong

I'm in black swampy water
Oh no, that's where I caught her
Black swampy water
Ooh, all things that I taught her

Yes I'm in black swampy water
My, my, where I saw her
Black swampy water
What I did when I caught her
