Catfish john

Let me dream of another morning
And the time so long ago
Where the sweet magnolias blossom
Cotton's fields as white as snow
Catfish john was a river hobo
Lived and dieon the river bend
Looking back I still remember
I was glad to be his friend

    Mama said don't go near that river
    Don't be hangin'around old catfish john
    Come the morning I'll always be there
    Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta down

Born a slave in the town of pittsburg
Traded for a chestunt mare
Still he never spoke in angel
Though his love is hard to bare
