     My father had three daughters                          So I became his only son


Following above pattern:

Verse 1

D                     
Summertime in Allen County
         Bm                  G
You can slice the air like bread

D
Pack up our old Rambler
Bm        Bm/A               G
With cane poles and little said


Chorus:
G                          A
You never talk much in a fishin’ boat
            D    D/C#           G
‘Cause it just scares the fish away
          A                 G
You just give it time and watch your line


Piano Fill (Intro chords)


Verse 2
D                           
When I'd ask what we were fishing for
Bm                               G
He’d just say, “Just an hour or two.”
D                    
Some folks are always like that
Bm          Bm/A          G
They never really answer you


Chorus:
G                          A
You never talk much in a fishin’ boat
            D    D/C#           G
‘Cause it just scares the fish away
          A                 G
You just give it time and watch your line


Piano Fill (Intro chords)


Verse 3
D
The sun goes down and why no one knows
Bm                    G
I grew up out of my fishin’ clothes
D
I told him once and he slowly smiled
Bm            Bm/A    G
That his only son was expecting a child


Chorus:
G                          A
You never talk much in a fishin’ boat
            D    D/C#           G
‘Cause it just scares the fish away
          A                 G
You just give it time and watch your line


Piano Fill (Intro chords)


Verse 4
D
I’ll remember all my life
Bm                        G
My father’s face in the deep twilight
D
In a boat under the evening sun
Bm       Bm/A        G
Throwin’ back the little ones
