Well, I laid down, down last night 
Well, I tried to take my rest 
Notion struck me last night, babe 
I b'lieve I take your stroll out, h'out west 
Take your stroll out, h'out west 
Take your stroll out, h'out west 
Take a stroll out west 
Take a stroll out west 

Well, if I were a catfish, mama 
I says, swimmin' deep down in the blue sea 
Have these girls now, sweet mama 
Settin' out, settin' out hooks for po' me 
Settin' out hooks for-h'or me 
Settin' out hooks for-h'or me 
Settin' down hook for me 
Settin' down hook for me 
Settin' down hook for me 

Well, I went down, yes! 
Down to the church house, yes! 
Well, I was called on me to pray 
Fell on my knees, now 
Mama, I didn't know one 
Not a word to-who say 
Not a word to-who say 
Not a word to-who 
Not a word to-who 
Not a word to say 

Not a word to say 
Not a word to say 

(guitar) 

'Play 'em man, play 'em a long time' 

I'm gonna write, write me a letter, baby 
I'm gonna write it just to see 
See if my baby, my baby, do she think of 
Little old thing, on po' me 
Little old thing, on po' me 
Little old thing, on po' me 

Little old thing for me 
Little old thing for me 
H'oh, little thing for me.
