Fishin' Blues

Fishin' Blues

Bet you goin' fishin' all of the time.
Baby goin' fishin' too.
Bet your life that your sweet wife
Gonna catch more fish than you.

CHO: Many fish bite if you got good bait.
     Here's a little tip that I'd like to relate:
     Many fish bite if you got good bait.
     I'm a-goin' fishin', yes I'm goin' fishin',
     And my baby's goin' fishin' too.

I went on down to my favorite fishin' hole,
Baby grab me a pole and line.
Throw my pole on in caught a nine pound catfish,
Now I brought him home for suppertime, provin'

Baby brother 'bout to run me out of my mind,
Sayin', "Can't I go fishin' with you?"
I took him on down to the fishin' hole,
Now what do you think that he did do?

(Chorus 2:) Pulled a great big fish out the bottom of the pond,
Now he laughed and jumped 'cause he was real gone.
Many fish bite if you got good bait.
I'm a-goin' fishin', yes I'm goin' fishin',
And my baby's goin' fishin' too.

Put him in the pot baby put him in the pan,
Honey cook him till he's nice and brown.
Make a batch of buttermilk coldcakes mama,
Then chew those things and chomp 'em on down, singing,
(Repeat first verse.)

As sung by Taj Mahal
