Catfish Bates

Song Author Alex Harvey Performer: Don Williams Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]They call me [F]Catfish Bates
Cause I can catch a catfish [C]anytime I want to
Even [G7]when the moon man tells me they won't [C]bite
They call me [F]Catfish Bates cause I know
Where that big [C]ole flathead's a hiding
And [F]I'm a gonna take him [G7]home with me [C]tonight

I am the [G7]king of Looseyhatchie my [F]home is on the [C]river
And them [G7]catfish they all know me by my [C]sign
I keep my [G7]nose on the west wind my [F]eye on the [C]water
And my [F]mind on my [G7]business all the [C]time

Well I get me a [G7]plug a Days Worth tobacco
And a [F]can a big ole [C]red worms
I go [G7]down to where the river´s running [C]strong
I throw my [G7]hook out on the water
I let it [F]float on down the [C]channel
And I'll [F]have me a big ole [G7]flathead fore too [C]long

[C]They call me [F]Catfish Bates
Cause I can catch a catfish [C]anytime I want to
Even [G7]when the moon man tells me they won't [C]bite
They call me [F]Catfish Bates cause I know
Where that big [C]ole flathead's a hiding
And [F]I'm a gonna take him [G7]home with me [C]tonight

Oh when they [G7]bury me I want to be [F]somewhere on the [C]river
With a [G7]big ole flathead laying on my [C]stone
And them [G7]catfish they´ll all be praying
They'll be [F]flatheads up in [C]heaven
So my [F]ghost will leave them [G7]hatchie cats [C]alone

[C]They call me [F]Catfish Bates
Cause I can catch a catfish [C]anytime I want to
Even [G7]when the moon man tells me they won't [C]bite
They call me [F]Catfish Bates cause I know
Where that big [C]ole flathead's a hiding
And [F]I'm a gonna take him [G7]home with me [C]tonight

And [F]I'm a gonna take him [G7]home with me
And [F]I'm a gonna take him [G7]home with me [C]tonight


They call me Catfish Bates
Cause I can catch a catfish anytime I want to
Even when the moon man tells me they won't bite
They call me Catfish Bates cause I know
Where that big ole flathead's a hiding
And I'm a gonna take him home with me tonight

I am the king of Looseyhatchie my home is on the river
And them catfish they all know me by my sign
I keep my nose on the west wind my eye on the water
And my mind on my business all the time

Well I get me a plug a Days Worth tobacco
And a can a big ole red worms
I go down to where the river´s running strong
I throw my hook out on the water
I let it float on down the channel
And I'll have me a big ole flathead fore too long

They call me Catfish Bates
Cause I can catch a catfish anytime I want to
Even when the moon man tells me they won't bite
They call me Catfish Bates cause I know
Where that big ole flathead's a hiding
And I'm a gonna take him home with me tonight

Oh when they bury me I want to be somewhere on the river
With a big ole flathead laying on my stone
And them catfish they´ll all be praying
They'll be flatheads up in heaven
So my ghost will leave them hatchie cats alone

They call me Catfish Bates
Cause I can catch a catfish anytime I want to
Even when the moon man tells me they won't bite
They call me Catfish Bates cause I know
Where that big ole flathead's a hiding
And I'm a gonna take him home with me tonight

And I'm a gonna take him home with me
And I'm a gonna take him home with me tonight
