Mandaddy  Trout Fishing in America


By Dana Cooper
As performed by Trout Fishing in America on the album "Who Are These People"
This is an approximation for those who are guitar-challenged. The chord struc
ture is correct, as is the key, but Ezra does play some rather interesting
chords that are unintelligible to me!!
[E]Summer is coming, catfish are jumping
The willows are [D]weeping up the r[A]iver
Mandaddy's wa[E]gon comes rattling and dragging
His magical r[A]oute[B]
He's bringing ghost s[E]tories and bright penny whistles
White Chinese m[D]uzzles in tins of g[A]lory
Look on the [E]horizon and see the dust ro[D]lling d[A]own the r[E]oad
My na[B]me is Mandaddy and I ro[A]am these h[E]ills
I sin[B]g and I whistle and I'll [A]cure your i[E]lls
Oh Ma[A]ndaddy, Oh Ma[C#m]ndaddy's gonna cure your i[F#]lls
Man[B]daddy's gonna cure your i[E]lls
He w[E]alks like a farmer, talks like warm water
Smells like to[D]bacco and gun p[A]owder
He's bringing red g[E]arters and bright copper kettles
and brown leather s[A]hoes[B]
He says, "I rem[E]ember when your folks was young'uns
Laughing and ru[D]nning in Indian su[A]mmer
They'd watch the h[E]orizon and see the dust r[D]olling d[A]own the r[E]oad!"
Everything ch[E]anges, it's only natural
Nothing re[D]mains as it once s[A]tarted
This time next su[E]mmer I may not be here, hear what I say
Children I lov[E]e you, you make life worth living
The rivers worth cr[E]ossing the gifts worth [A]giving
Look on the ho[E]rizon and see the dust roll[D]ing d[A]own the [E]road
