FISHIN' BLUES     (trad.)


1. Well, I went down on the hill about twelve o'clock.
I ran right right back and I got me a pole.
I'm goin' down to the fishin' hole

And you come fishin' all the time

- Have you been a-fishin' all the time,
I'm a-goin' fishin' too.

Well, you bet your life, your lovin'wife.
Can catch more fish than you.
Any fish bite if you've got good bait.
Here's a little somethin' I would like to relate.

So come on, baby, come on, gal
I'm a-goin' a-fishin', yes, I'm a-goin' a-fishin'
And you come a-fishin' too.

2. Well, I went down the river about one o'clock.
Spied that catfish swimmin' around.
I'm goin' down to the fishin' hole
I live in the country instead of the town

- Have you been a-fishin' all the time,
I'm a-goin' fishin' too.

Well, you bet your life, your lovin'wife.
Can catch more fish than you.
Any fish bite if you've got good bait.
Here's a little somethin' I would like to relate.

So come on, baby, come on, gal
I'm a-goin' a-fishin', instead of just a-wishin'
And you would come a-fishin' too.
