Catfish Blues-Robert Petway
E position, standard tuning

Well, I laid down, down last night
Well, I tried to take my rest
Notion struck me last night, babe, I'll b'lieve I
Take your stroll out West, take your stroll out West
Take your stroll out West
Take a stroll out West, take a stroll out West

What if I were a catfish, mama,
I says, swimmin' deep down in, deep blue sea
I b'lieve the gals, now sweet mama, settin' out
Settin' out hooks for poor me, settin' out hooks for 'oor me,
Settin' out hooks for poor me
Settin' out hook for me, settin' out hook for me
Settin' out hook for me

Well, I went down, (spoken: yes!), down to the churchhouse, (spoken: yes!)
Well, I [sic] called on me to pray
Fell on my knees now, mama, I didn't know a darn
Not a word to say, not a word to say
Not a word to --, not a word to--
Not a word to say, not a word to say
Not a word to say

(Spoken: Play 'em, man, play 'em a long time!)
LONG TIME

I'm gwonna write, write me a letter, baby,
I'm gonna write it, just to see
See if my babe, my baby, do she think any
Little old thing of poor me, little old thing of poor me
Little old thing of poor me
Little old thing of me, little old thing of me
Ho, little thing of me
