A5                 D5 
Mama said don't go near that river 
A5                                 E5 
Don't be hanging round old Catfish John 
A5                   D5 
Come the morning I'd always be there 
A5                               E5             A5
Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn 

        D5               A5 
Take me back to another morning 
     D5             A5 
To a time so long ago 
          D5              A5 
Where the sweet magnolia blossomed 
A5                  E5        A5 
Cotton fields were white as snow 
Catfish John was a river hobo 
Lived and died by the river's bend 
Looking back I still remember 
I was proud to be his friend 
Born a slave in the town of Richmond 
Traded for a chestnut mare 
Lord he never spoke in anger 
Though his load was hard to bear 
Walking in his footsteps in the sweet Delta dawn
