Lightnin' Hopkins Lyrics

Catfish Blues Lyrics
(Traditional)

You know I wished I was a catfish, swimming in that deep blue sea
I'd have all the good looking women there boy, fishing after me
Fishing after me
Ooh ooh

I went down to my baby's house
She said, "Lightnin', come on in
Ain't nobody here with me good Lord
You know I'm your friend"

You know I went down to my baby's house, Lord, I sat down on them steps
She said, "Come on in this house Lightnin', husband just now left
My husband just now left, sho'h 'nough I'm by myself
He just now left"

You know I went down to the river, started jump overboard and drown
I thought about that little mama, turned around, I went walking back to town
Back to town
Back to town
Sho'h 'nough, back to town

You know I wish I was a catfish, swimming, Lord in that deep blue sea
I'd have all the good looking women's, fishing after me
Fishing after me
Sho'h 'nough
Ain't lying
Mmm mmmm
