Yellow-Backed Fly
Steve Martin & Graham Sharp, Steep Canyon Rangers

Capo 3 – Standard Tuning

D        A          D             A
Carolina time, grab   the fishing line
          D       A              D          A
Gonna    get old Jim with the yellow-backed fly 
G               D             G          D
Bought it in a store,     paid a little more
       A          D              G            A
Gonna catch that fish with the yellow-backed fly

D         A          D               A
Tried it last year with a lit firefly
        D             A        D         A
Laid it on the water with a perfect bullseye
G           D           G      D
Jim made a splash, gone in a flash
   A          D            G      A
Beneath the water I heard him laugh

Chorus 1
        D            G          D
I go at six a.m., qui-et as a hymn 
                                            A
Gonna catch old Jim with the yellow-backed fly        
   D                    G               D
Gonna catch him wry, Gon-na catch him quick 
                                C              D         
Take him by surprise   at the bottom of the crick
C  D  C  D  C  D  C  D  C  D


     D              A        D            A
He lives beneath a rock, underneath the shade 
        D        A                  D            A
I will have him made with the     yellow-backed fly 
G              D       G          D
Here I am at last, lying in the grass, 
    A           D               G           A
A quiet little cast with the yellow-backed fly


Chorus 2
      D                  G              D
Felt a little tug, ole Jim had bit the bug
                                           A 
Then I let him run with the yellow-backed fly
   D                     G             D 
Jumped up on the land, spit it in my hand 
                                C             D        
He said, "nice try    with the yellow-backed fly"


  D             A           D       A
Then he swam away, I gave him a farewell 
           D    A              D      A
Now I'm going home   with a story to tell 
G                    D        G               D
I put the truck in gear,    I'll be back next year 
   A          D           G             A
Gonna make a fly with a hypno...tizing eye


Chorus 3 (2X)

       D            G          D
I go at six a.m., quiet as a hymn
                                            A
Gonna catch old Jim with the yellow-backed fly 
  D                   G                D
Twenty inches long,  measured with a stick 
                          C             D      
He's old Jim,     but to me he's Moby Dick

C  D  C  D  C (repeat only)

C D G C D
