Thursday Theme Song...they're gone...

Gone fishin'
There's a sign upon your door 
Gone fishin'
You ain't workin' anymore 
There's your hoe
out in the sun 
Where you left a row
half done 
You claim that
hoein' ain't no fun 
You ain't got no ambition 

Gone fishin' by a 
shady wady pool 
I'm wishin' I could
be that kind of fool 
I'd say no more work for mine
On my door I'd hang a sign 
Gone fishin'
instead of just a-wishin' 

Gone fishin'
There's a sign
upon your door 
Gone fishin'
You ain't workin' 
Cows need milkin’ 
in the barn
But you just don’t 
give a darn
You ain’t got no ambition

Gone fishin'
Got your hound dog 
by your side
Gone fishin'
Fleas are bitin' 
at his hide
Folks won’t find us now 
Mr. Satch and Mr. Croz
We gone fishin’ 
instead of just a-wishin’

How perfect! Great photos to go with the song! I love fishing!


I don't think I've ever heard this song before, if I's been forgotten. I LOVE your fishy take on the theme songs this week!!!!

This is a new song to me too. Great job.
I thoroughly enjoyed your bagpipe lesson story. I bet there are stories to be told about music lessons
Hugs to you and Lindy

I have heard this song before by Bing. They just don't make music like that anymore.
I wish I had a little cabin by the river somewhere cause I'd use that window treatment idea for sure. :)

I'm glad my "Bridge Over Troubled Water" song held such a lovely memory for you. Thanks for sharing it with me.
