"Catfish Blues" as written by and Robert Petway....
well i wish, i was a catfish
swimin' in the, the deep blue sea
i have all you pretty women
fishin' after me
showin' up after me
oh well
ow well
oh yeah
oh yeah
well i went down
to my girlfriends house
and i sat alone on her front step
and she said a "come in outcha man and just your love"
i just now left
i just now left
and i say
who yeah
she said sure enough you did
who yeah
who yeah
who yeah
oh yeah
yeah,
well there's two
two trains runnin'
but there's not a one that's goin' my way
you know there's a, one train running at midnight
the other one leave just for day
leave just for day
oh well
yeah
i role and i tumble
practicly all night long
i role and i tumble
practicly all night long
well, my baby don't treat me well
...
yeah
