Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Catfish John  Alison Krauss

[D]Mama said don't go [G]near that river
[D]Don't be hangin' around old catfish [A]John
[D]But come the morning I'd [G]always be there
[D]Walking in his footsteps in [A]sweet delta [D]dawn.

Born a [G]slave in the town of [D]Vicksburg
Traded [G]for a chestnut [D]mare
He [G]never spoke a word in [D]anger
Though his lo[A]ad was hard to [D]bear.

[D]Mama said don't go [G]near that river
[D]Don't be hangin' around old catfish [A]John
[D]But come the morning I'd [G]always be there
[D]Walking in his footsteps in [A]sweet delta [D]dawn.
Guitar & fiddle solos: G | D | G | D | G | D | A | D

[D]Catfish [G]John was a river [D]hobo
He lived and [G]died on the river [D]bend
Thinkin' [G]back I still re[D]member
I was pro[A]ud to be his [D]friend.

[D]Mama said don't go [G]near that river
[D]Don't be hangin' around old catfish [A]John
[D]But come the morning I'd [G]always be there
[D]Walking in his footsteps in [A]sweet delta [D]dawn.
Banjo and mandolin solos: G | D | G | D | G | D | A | D

[D]Let me [G]dream of another [D]morning
And a [G]time so long a[D]go
When the [G]sweet magnolias [D]blossomed
And the cotton fie[A]lds were white as [D]snow.

[D]Mama said don't go [G]near that river
[D]Don't be hangin' around old catfish [A]John
[D]But come the morning I'd [G]always be there
[D]Walking in his footsteps in [A]sweet delta [D]dawn.
[D]Come the morning I'd [G]always be there
[D]Walking in his footsteps in [A]sweet delta [D]dawn.
