I was driving 'round as the sun went down
When I came upon a lake, the sign said, 'Misty Water'
And standing there with wet and tangled hair was a girl
she said her name was Bo, she was a farmer's daughter
I said get in, I'll take you home, you must be cold

Misty water woman
You never get to her
Misty water woman
You never get to touch her
And feel her near

It began to storm and our talk grew warm
Till I stopped the car outside a cold and lonely place
I said we're here but she had disappeared
And on the seat was a pool of tears and a handkerchief of lace
I did not see her leave, I was amazed

Misty water woman
You never get to her
Misty water woman
You never get to touch her
And feel her warm

I sped into the house
It took her father and her mother to straighten me out
What was it all about? Please let me know
She looked sad and he looked mad

And he said, yes you're right, once we had a daughter
Her name was Bo but that was long ago
Years have gone since she drowned at 'Misty Water'
And the way he took it, took me by surprise

Misty water woman
You never get to her
Misty apparition
You never get to touch her
And feel her near
