Catfish Bates
Recorded by Don Williams
Written by Alex Harvey

C F
They call me Catfish Bates
C
Cause I can catch a catfish anytime I want to
G7 C
Even when the moon man tells me they won't bite
F
They call me Catfish Bates cause I know
C
Where that big ole flathead's a hiding
F G7 C
And I'm a gonna take him home with me tonight

G7 F C
I am the king of Looseyhatchie my home is on the river
G7 C
And them catfish they all know me by my sign
G7 F C
I keep my nose on the west wind my eye on the water
F G7 C
And my mind on my business all the time

G7
Well I get me a plug a Days Worth tobacco
F C
And a can a big ole red worms
G7 C
I go down to where the river’s running strong
G7
I throw my hook out on the water
F C
I let it float on down the channel
F G7 C
And I'll have me a big ole flathead fore too long

Repeat #1

G7 F C
Oh when they bury me I want to be somewhere on the river
G7 C
With a big ole flathead laying on my stone
G7
And them catfish they’ll all be praying
F C
They'll be flatheads up in heaven
F G7 C
So my ghost will leave them hatchie cats alone

Repeat #1

F G7
And I'm a gonna take him home with me
F G7 C
And I'm a gonna take him home with me tonight
