Höfundur lags: Allen Reynolds og Bob McDill Flytjandi: Ricky Skaggs Sent inn af: Anonymous
[C]Mama said don't go [F]near that river
[C]Don't be hanging around old Catfish [G7]John   
[C]But come the morning I'd [F]always be there
[C]Walking in his footsteps in [G7]sweet delta [C]dawn

Let me [F]dream of another [C]morning
And a [F]time so long a[C]go  
When the [F]sweet magnolias [C]blossomed
And the cotton fields [G7]were white as [C]snow

Catfish J[F]ohn was a river h[C]obo  
He lived and [F]died on the river [C]bend
Thinking [F]back I still re[C]member
I was proud to[G7] be his [C]friend

[C]Mama said don't go [F]near that river
[C]Don't be hanging around old Catfish [G7]John   
[C]But come the morning I'd [F]always be there
[C]Walking in his footsteps in [G7]sweet delta [C]dawn

Born a [F]slave in the town of [C]Vicksburg
Traded [F]for a chestnut [C]mare
Still [F]he never spoke a in [C]anger
Though his load [G7]was hard to [C]bear

[C]Mama said don't go [F]near that river
[C]Don't be hanging around old Catfish [G7]John   
[C]But come the morning I'd [F]always be there
[C]Walking in his footsteps in [G7]sweet delta [C]dawn

Come the morning I'd [F]always be there
[C]Walking in his footsteps in [G7]sweet delta [C]dawn

Mama said don't go near that river
Don't be hanging around old Catfish John
But come the morning I'd always be there
Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn

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

Catfish John was a river hobo
He lived and died on the river bend
Thinking back I still remember
I was proud to be his friend

Mama said don't go near that river
Don't be hanging around old Catfish John
But come the morning I'd always be there
Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn

Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg
Traded for a chestnut mare
Still he never spoke a in anger
Though his load was hard to bear

Mama said don't go near that river
Don't be hanging around old Catfish John
But come the morning I'd always be there
Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn

Come the morning I'd always be there
Walking in his footsteps in sweet delta dawn
