Lightnin' Hopkins – Catfish Blues lyrics

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 nuff 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 nuff, 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 womens
Fishing after me
Fishing after me
Sho nuff
Ain't lying
Mmm mmmm
