about

In the roundabout way of songwriting inspiration, I have Bobby Rush to thank for this tune. I wrote a song (‘Chicken Wants Corn’) around a quote of Bobby’s on my last YDR album ‘Lucky 13’. We talked about it in Memphis that year at the Blues Music Awards. He was very nice and gave me a copy of his latest single, a song called ‘Night Fishing’… What can I say? I am very impressionable.

lyrics

Let’s go fishing baby - you know how to wet a line
Let’s go fishing baby - you know how to wet a line
And you’ll never find
A fishing hole that’s better than mine

Let’s go early in the morning, then again at supper time
We’ll go early in the morning, then again at supper time
‘Cause you’ll never find
A fishing hole that’s better than mine

Well, I see you got a pole
I know you got some bait
I’m getting kind of hungry
So the fishing won’t wait!
Let’s go fishing baby – you know how to wet a line
And you’ll never find
A fishing hole that’s better than mine

It takes a special man to fish it just right
It takes a special man to fish it just right
But if you’re the one
You can fish it both day and night

Let’s go fishing baby - you know how to wet a line
Let’s go fishing baby - you know how to wet a line
And you’ll never find
A fishing hole that’s better than mine
