Daddy , I Wanna Go Fishin'
Daddy, I Wanna’ go Fishin’
(R Moore)

A million stars were in the sky
Four AM on the fifth-of-July
We headed out to Toledo Bend
Me and daddy going fishing again
He said, “We’ll be there in an hour or so.”
Charlie Rich was on the radio
I said, “I hope we get lucky today”
He nodded his head and I herd him say

If the good Lord’s willin’ and the Mercury runs
We’ll be on the water before the sun
With rods, reels, and spinner baits
We’ll cast our troubles into that lake
Cause life is a whole lot better when the fishin’s fine
And there’s a little bit of heaven at the end of that line

We pulled into Choctaw camp
He eased that bass boat down the ramp
I held the rope while he parked the truck
I caught myself waking up
He got us out to our honey hole
How he finds it, I’ll never know
I said, “All these trees look alike’
He said, “Son, you can trust this old Indian guide”

When the good Lord’s willin’ and the Mercury runs
We’ll be on the water before the sun
With rods, reels, and spinner baits
We’ll cast our troubles into that lake
Cause life is a whole lot better when the fishin’s fine
And there’s a little bit of heaven at the end of that line

Now when I think about my daddy I think about fishin’
And I think about fishin’ every day
When I die and leave this place, I wanna see my daddy’s face
Sayin’, “Get the rods and reels son, we’re headin’ to the lake.”

A million stars were in the sky
Four AM on the fifth-of-July
We headed out to Toledo Bend
Me and daddy going fishing again

La, la, la, la come on let’s go fishin’
La, la, la, la grab the rods and reels, how do you feel
Son, don’t wanna go fishin’
Daddy, I wanna go fishin’
