Fishin In the Dark  Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

[G]Crickets are singing and lightning bugs are floatin on the breeze

Baby get ready  [D]

Cross the field where the creek turns back by the old stump row

[G]Im gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows

Baby get ready  [D]
[A7]Oooh Oooh

[D]You and me go fishin in the dark

Lyin on our backs and countin the stars

Where the cool g[G]rass grows

[D]Down by the river in the full moon light
Well be fallin in love in the middle of the night

Just mov[G]in slow

[Em]Stayin the whole night thro[A]ugh
[Em]Feels so good to b[A]e with yo[D]u
(Verse 2)

[D]Spring is almost over and the summers comin; the days are getting long

Ive wai[G]ted all winter for the time to be right just to take you along
Baby get re[D]ady
And i[D]t dont matter if we sit forever and the fish dont bite
Well ju[G]mp in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night
Baby get re[D]ady
[A7]Ooooh Oooh
(Chorus 2x)

Fade out
