I Caught a Keeper

I Caught a Keeper
(Mike Dowling/Pinspotter Music, ASCAP)

Well, I been fishin' in the sea of love.
I been tryin' to catch the one I been dreamin' of.
I guess I caught me four or five,
Just enough to keep my hopes alive.
I let 'em go 'cause they wouldn't do,
But I caught a keeper when I caught you.
I caught a keeper when I caught you.

Now, when my friends see what I've got,
They'll be cruisin' on over to my lucky spot.
I tell 'em that's all right by me,
There's lots of fish in the deep blue sea.
You're my limit and I don't need two.
'Cause I caught a keeper when I caught you.
I caught a keeper when I caught you.

(Bridge:) On the day I found you, I remember how my motor roared.
I put my arms around you, an' I hollered, "Man overboard!"

Well, I'm so glad you didn't get away.
I'm a-gonna keep you near me night and day.
You're the best of the whole darned batch.
You're my once-in-a-lifetime catch.
But now my fishin' days are through,
'Cause I caught a keeper when I caught you.
I caught a keeper when I caught you.

(Repeat bridge and last verse.)

As sung by Barry & Holly Tashian on "Straw into Gold," Rounder 0332, and on coll
ection "Hills of Home," Rounder CD AN 16/17.
