Catfish John

Please note, that some chords start in the middle of words. This is shown by the chord being placed within a word at the point where the chord begins, not at the start. Slightly strange chord pattern. If you're after the normal A, D & E pattern that's used a lot in these songs, you'll need a capo on fret 5 and go from A->E, D->A, G->D. Permission granted to Countrytabs and Cowboylyrics to host. Intro: G | D | G | D | G | D | A | D D G Mama said don't go near that river D A Don't be hangin' around old catfish John D G But come the morning I'd always be there D A D Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn. G D Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg G D Traded for a chestnut mare G D He never spoke a word in anger A D Though his load was hard to bear. D G Mama said don't go near that river D A Don't be hangin' around old catfish John D G But come the morning I'd always be there D A D Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn. Guitar & fiddle solos: G | D | G | D | G | D | A | D D G D Catfish John was a river hobo G D He lived and died on the river bend G D Thinkin' back I still remember A D I was proud to be his friend. D G Mama said don't go near that river D A Don't be hangin' around old catfish John D G But come the morning I'd always be there D A D Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn. Banjo and mandolin solos: G | D | G | D | G | D | A | D D G D Let me dream of another morning G D And a time so long ago G D When the sweet magnolias blossomed A D And the cotton fields were white as snow. D G Mama said don't go near that river D A Don't be hangin' around old catfish John D G But come the morning I'd always be there D A D Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn. D G Come the morning I'd always be there D A D Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn.
