Jeff Bates – Riverbank lyrics

If there was ever a morning when the fish migh bite, it'll be right now
Any other time we'd done had our lines cast out
Sippin on a jug of mama's sweet iced tea
Catchin them 'ol cat
Why couldn't today be like that?

I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we were sittin and fishin and this wouldn't be so hard
It was my favorite thing that we used to do, but now we can't
I wish you were here and I wish this were a riverbank

Remember the day when I baited my hook with a chunk of ham
I got a big bite and he yanked the pole right outta my hand
Well you jumped up and you grabbed the net and we both jumped in
Yeah, we got wet oh but we got him

Man I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we were sittin and fishin and this wouldn't be so hard
It was my favorite thing that we used to do, but now we can't
I wish you were here and I wish this were a riverbank

I know you wouldn't want me sittin 'round and bein' sad
You taught me better than that
So I'm leavin' now gonna head on out
And try to catch a few and while I'm there
I'll cast a line for you

Man I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we were sittin and fishin and this wouldn't be so hard
It was my favorite thing that we used to do, but now we can't
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
And I wish this were a riverbank
