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
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
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
