my lyricsbox
You gone fishin' there's a sign upon your door
Gone fishin' you ain't workin' anymore
There's a hoe out in the sun
Where you left the row half done
You claim that hoe and ain't no fun
But 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 a door I'd hang a sign
Gone fishin' instead of just a wishin'

You've gone fishin' there's a sign upon your door
Gone fishin' you ain't workin' anymore
Cows need milkin' in the barn but you just don't give a darn
You just never seem to learn you ain't got no ambition
Gone fishin' there's your hound dog by your side
Gone fishin' fleas are bitin' at his side

Folks just can't find you here
'Cause old Alan Clinton
Gone fishin' instead of just a wishin'

You've gone fishin'
You don't worry about no waters
Gone fishin' you don't bother with the chores
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'

I would peace has never died
All the word was by my side
Folks just can't find me your in
'Cause old Alan Clinton
Gone fishin' instead of just a wishin'
