Pontiac Joe Lyr/Chords Req: Fishin Blues (Taj Mahal) (4) Lyr Add: FISHING BLUES (from Taj Mahal) 14 Jun 00


Here's another version that Taj Mahal did. I play it in C, C F G

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.

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' ... many fish bite....

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?
Pulled a great big fish out the bottom of the pond.
Now he laughed and jumped 'cause he was real gone.
Many fish bite...

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 hoecakes, mama,
Then chew those things and chomp 'em on down,
Singing, many fish bite...

Repeat verse 1
