Krauss Alison – Catfish John
CHORUS:
A D A
Mama said don't go near that river,
A7 E7
Don't be hangin' around old Catfish John;
A D A
But come the morning I'd always be there,
E7 A
Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn.

D A
Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg,
D A
Traded for a chestnut mare;
D A
He never spoke a word in anger,
- E7 A
Though his load was hard to bear.

CHORUS…

D A
Catfish John was a river hobo.
D A
He lived and died on the river bend.
D A
Thinkin' back I still remember,
- E7 A
I was proud to be his friend.

CHORUS

D A
Let me dream of another morning
D A
And a time so long ago;
D A
When the sweet magnolias blossomed
E7 A
And the cotton fields were white as snow.

CHORUS
