aka "Fishing Song"

Special "Father's Day" live recording


Got my first fishing pole
When I was only fiver years old
We headed out to Rattlesnake Lake
Best fishing in the whole damn state

And when I miss him
I go fish in our favorite place
I know its strange but I swear
I can hear him say

Catch a big one
You gotta live some
Fall in love like the first time you fell in
And Keep on Fishin'

Fishin' was just his way
To keep from drinkin' everyday
He had a golden heart
Locked inside steel string guitar

And when I miss him
I just pick it up and play
I know it's strange but I swear I hear him say

Sing a loud one
Sing it proud son
And if you're lookin' for a song that you could die singing
Just Keep on fishin

He lived like the northwest sun
Here one day and then he was gone
It might sound strange but I swear he's on a lake in the clouds somewhere

Catchin' the big one
Yeah he's got a fish on
Fallin' in love all over again he looks down and says

Yeah that's the one
Sing it proud son
Cuz it's the same song that I died singing

Keep on livin keep on loving and keep on Fishin
