Catfish John

Alison Krauss

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

 GD
Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg
 GD
Traded for a chestnut mare
 GD
He never spoke a word in anger
 AD
Though his load was hard to bear.

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

Guitar & fiddle solos: G | D | G | D | G | D | A | D

 DGD
 Catfish John was a river hobo
 GD
He lived and died on the river bend
 GD
Thinkin' back I still remember
 AD
I was proud to be his friend.

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

Banjo and mandolin solos: G | D | G | D | G | D | A | D

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

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

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