Fishin’ Blues

Fishin' Blues - Taj Mahal -

Bettcha goin’ fishin’ all the time,
Baby goin’ fishin’ too
Bet your life, your sweet wife
will catch more fish than you

Many fish bites if you got good bait
Here’s a little tip that I would like to relay
Many fish bites if you got good bait,
I’m a-goin fishin’, yes I’m a-goin fishin’, and my baby goin’ fishin too!

I went down to my favorite fishin’ hole,
baby, Grabbed me a pole and line.
Throwed my pole on in caught a nine pound cabbage
now you know I brought him home for supper time

Many fish bites if you got good bait
Here’s a little tip that I would like to relay
Many fish bites if you got good bait,
I’m a-goin fishin’, yes I’m a-goin fishin’, and my baby goin’ fishin too!

Baby brother bout to drive me out a my mind
sayin can I go fishin’ with you
I took him on down to the fishin’ hole
now what do you think that he did do?
He pulled a great big fish out the bottom of the pond
Now he laughed and jumped cause he was real gone

Many fish bites if you got good bait,
I’m a-goin fishin’, yes I’m a-goin fishin’, and my baby goin’ fishin too!

put em in the pot baby, put em in the pan
honey, cook em till their nice n brown
make a batch of butter milk cold cakes Momma
and chew them things an chomp em on down, singin’

Many fish bites if you got good bait
Here’s a little tip that I would like to relay
Many fish bites if you got good bait,
I’m a-goin fishin’, yes I’m a-goin fishin’, and my baby goin’ fishin too!
