I walked down the hill about twelve a clock
I sat right down on a great big rock
I looked down the water en blessed my soul
I seen a great big catfish jumpin' that hole

I'm a gonna fishin 'cause everybody's fishing
And I'm a gonna fishing too

You bet your life That your lovin' wife
Might catch more fish than you
Any fish will bite if you got good bate
And here's a little something That I'd like to relate
And when it's time to bite, Lord, the fish won't wait
I'm a gonna fishin 'cause everybody's fishing
And I'm a gonna fishing too

I went to the store and I took a look
Got a pole and some line and a triple hook
Then an old man smiled as he said to me
Son, catch a big catfish for me


I lean right back against on old big tree
Then a big old bass took a look at me
He took my bate when I throwed my line
When I got him to the bank, Lord, he sure looked fine
