    Default Fishin' Blues

    Does anyone know or have the chords for Fishin' Blues? I still can't figure it out.
    Thanks

    I don't think those chords are correct. I recall it as a minor variation on 12-bar blues. Something like this:

    F
    I'm going fishin...
    Bb
    Won't you come fishin' too?
    F
    Bet your life...
    G7 C
    Catch more fish than you
    F
    Any fish bite...
    F7
    If you got good bait
    Bb
    Here's a little somethin...
    F
    Anyfish bite...
    C
    I'm a going fishin too

    Thanks. I tend to play songs in C in the key of F because I learned those shapes from playing guitar and sometimes it's just easier to go with the muscle memory than transpose the keys.
