Fish stories

Words and Music Copyright (c) 2003 by Jack Morris

Verse 1:
Today I launched out of Venice and trolled
The Wagon Wheel with jigs and pigs
In the cuts and pockets of the dead-end marsh canals
Caught my limit of monster bass
Came home tired cleaned the fish
And stuffed the filets in the freezer

Chorus:
You work to pay
The cost of living
You live to play
You die someday
Get forgiven
But it’s a damned shame about the high cost of fishing

Bridge:
You need a boat motor trailer and a truck to
pull 'em
Fishfinder mobile phone and GPS
Graphite rod and titanium spool
Spinner crank soft and topwater baits

Verse 2:
Once upon a time I'd grab handfuls of earth
Out the worm garden that grew in the yard
Stuff the squirming dirt in a can
Pick a cane pole behind the shed
Walk down Orleans Avenue
To the City Park lagoons and fish till dark

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Bridge]

Verse 3:
The water was black and deep then
Swimming with bream and cats and crappie galore
And the possibility of a green flash
The phenomenal churn yank and splash
Of a monster bass erupting
Like a green god out of black water

[Repeat Chorus]

Coda:
It’s a damned shame about the high cost
A damned shame about the high cost
A damned shame about the high cost of fishing
