Down by the River

Просматривая с утра выступление Нила нашего Янга на Farm Aid 25, в очередной раз поразился тексту этой песни.

Be on my side, I'll be on your side, baby
There is no reason for you to hide
It's so hard for me staying here all alone
When you could be taking me for a ride.

She could drag me over the rainbow,
And send me away

Down by the river

I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, oh, shot her dead
...


Девушка была? Лошадь? Или это героиновая метафора? Сам Нил писал, что песня о конце отношений.
