C                   F
Mama said don't go near that river. 
C                                   G
Don't be hanging around old Catfish John.
C                        F
But come the morning I'd always be there
C                                C           C
Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn.

        F                    C         
Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg 
       F             C
Traded for a chestnut mare
         F               C     
He never spoke a word in anger,
 C          G                C
 though his load was hard to bare


Catfish John was a river hobo
he lived and died on the river bend
Thinking back I still remember
I was proud to be his friend.


Let me dream of another morning 
and a time so long ago
When the sweet magnolias blossomed 
and the cotton fields were white as snow
