    Lyrics

    I went down to the fishing hole,
    And I set down with my fishing pole;
    Somethin' grabb'd my hook and it got my bait
    And Jerked me out in the middle of the lake.
    Huh it was some jump boy,
    I got sunk, kinda baptized on credit.

    Fishin' down on th' muddy bank,
    Felt a pull an' give a big yank,
    I drug out three old rubber boots,
    A Ford radiator an' a Chevrolet coop
    (Nothin' but Junk, so I handed it in
    For National Defence).

    Settin' in a boat with a bucket of beer,
    Hadn't caught nuthin' but didn't much care,
    I guess I was pretty well satisfied,
    Had my little woman right by my side
    (Takin' it easy, just waitin'
    Worm been gone off-a that hook for a couple of hours.
    I was busy).

    When you go fishin', tell y' what to do,
    Go set down by the grassy dew,
    Take a piece of string, tie it on yo' pole,
    Throw it way out in th' middle of th' hole.
    Find you a good shady tree and then just set down.
    (Go to sleep, forget all about it
    Can't catch nuthin' here anyways.)

    Well I walked out to a sandy bar,
    And I caught myself a big alligator gar,
    Drug him home across my back,
    Tail was dragging a mile and a half,
    Flippin' an' floppin'. I sold him for a quarter.
    (Shot craps, got in Jall.)

    Jumped in the river and went down deep,
    There was a hundred pound cat-fish lying there asleep,
    Well I jumped on his back and rode him all aroun'
    Saddled him up and I came into town.
    People came runnin', lookin', dogs a-barkin'
    (Kids a-squallin').

    Early one mornin' I took me a notion,
    To go out fishin' in the middle of the ocean,
    Well, throwed me a line, I got me a shark,
    I didn't get him home till way past dark.
    (Was he a man-eater, tough customer.
    But he wasn't quite tough enough.)

    Late last night I had me a dream,
    I was out fishin' in a whiskey stream,
    Baited my hook with apple-jack,
    Threw out a drink, drug a gallon back.
    (Done pretty good till the creek run dry.
    I give the fish back to the finance company.)
