CATFISH JOHN (Bob McDill / Allen Reynolds) Charlie Waller & The Country Gentlemen Ch. Mamma said: Don't go near that river Don't be hanging 'round old Catfish John From the morning I'd always be there Walkin' in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn Let me dream of another morning And the time so long ago When the sweet magnolias blossomed Cottonfields were white as snow Catfish John was a river hobo Lived and died where the river bends Searching back I still remember I was proud to be his friend Ch. Born a slave in town of Bixford Traded for a chestnut mare Still he never spoke in anger Though his load was heard to bear Ch. Walkin' in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn
