B.b. King – Catfish Blues Lyrics

WellI wish I was a catfish

Swimmin’ in the deep blue sea

I’d have all you women

Fishin’ after me

Fishin’ after me

Fishin’ after me

WellI’m broke and I’m hungry

Ragged and I’m dirty too

Wellif I clean upbabycan i

Stay home with you

Stay home with you

Stay home with you

If I can’tcan’t come in

Let me sit down front of your door

I’ll leave so earlyyour

Mom won’t know

Won’t never know

Won’t never know

OhI knowknow my baby

Wellshe’s going to jump and shout

When my train pulls in and i

I come walkin’ out

Come walkin’ out

Come walkin’ out

YesI’m goin’babe I’m goin’

And your crying won’t make me stay

Ohthe more that you crybaby

More I’ll go away

More I’ll go away

More I’ll go away

Well now I knowI know you don’t want me

Why in the world won’t you tell me so?

Then I won’t be caughtbaby’round

Your house no more

Your house no more

Your house no more
