Fishin' On The Mississippi
Recorded by Tony Booth
Written by Bob Morris

C F C
Well I'm fishin' in the middle of the Mississippi river
G7 C
And the water's too muddy to drink
F C
A big catfish chewin' in my little toe
G7 C
And my baby's waitin' on the bank

F
Well I tried to make a livin' on the Mississippi river
C G7
It's a mighty hard life to live
C F
But I'm gonna build a house for my pretty little baby
C G7 C
And I'm gonna build it on the hill

F
Don't you know if I'm lucky I catch you catfish
C G7
Sell 'em for a dollar bill
C F
Then I buy another board and a pocketful of nails
C G7 C
For the little house on the hill

repeat #1

F
Well my daddy told me that there's sure gonna be
C G7
A lotta hard times comin' around
C F
Well I'd rather be fishin' on the Mississippi river
C G7 C
Than a diggin' in the cold cold ground

F
Well I couldn't make whiskey like all of the others
C G7
Cause my baby would set me free
C F
And I have to go runnin' down the Mississippi river
C G7 C
When the law comes callin' on me

repeat #1 x2
