Well I might have gone fishin'
I got to thinkin' it over
The road to the river is a mighty long way
Well it must be the reason
No rhyme or no reason
I'm takin' it easy, it's my lazy day

I never mind callin' cause I ain't comin'
Just get you on by me
And stay out of my way stay out of my way
A little bit thinkin'
Drives me to drinkin'
Hey I'm a takin' it easy, it's my lazy day

[ piano - guitar ]

Well I might have gone fishin'
I got to thinkin' it over
The road to the river is a mighty long way
Well it must be the reason
No rhyme or no reason
I'm takin' it easy, it's my lazy day
