Taj Mahal

Henry Saint Clair Fredericks (born May 17, 1942), who uses the stage name Taj Mahal, is an American Grammy Award winning blues musician. He often incorporates elements of world music into his music. A self-taught singer-songwriter and film composer who plays the guitar, banjo and harmonica (among many other instruments), Mahal has done much to reshape the definition and scope of blues music over the course of his almost 50 year career by fusing it with nontraditional forms, including sounds from the Caribbean, Africa and the South Pacific. more »

Oh, I wish I was a catfish
Swimmin' into the deep blue sea
I'd have all the good lookin' women
Swimmin' after me
Swimmin' after me
Swimmin' after me

Cause these blues, oh, these blues
Cause I'm goin' to the little girl's house, oh
Maybe you can find her
Timbuktu to Bamako
Timbuktu to Bamako
Timbuktu to Bamako

Oh, I wish, oh honey I can holler her
[?]
I keep on howlin' till I get
My baby back
Your baby back
My baby back

Well, it's two trains runnin'
Can never go my way
I'm gonna ride the first thing smokin'
Down the road I go
Down the road I go

Said now, I wish I was a catfish
Swimmin' into the deep blue sea
I'd have all you good lookin' women
Swimmin' after me
Swimmin' after me
Swimmin' after me

Oh, rollin' on, oh, rollin' on
Oh, rollin' on, oh, rollin' on
