D chordD G chordG
Mama said don't go near that river
D chordD A chordA
Don't be hanging around old Catfish John
D chordD G chordG
But come the morning I'd always be there
D chordD A chordA D chordD
Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn


[Verse 1]
G chordG D chordD
Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg
G chordG D chordD
Traded for a chestnut mare
G chordG D chordD
He never spoke a word in anger
A chordA D chordD
Though his load was hard to bare

[Chorus]

Mama said don't go near that river

Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn


[Verse 2]
G chordG D chordD
Catfish John was a river hobo
G chordG D chordD
He lived and died on the river bend

Looking back I still remember

Let me dream of another morning
G chordG D chordD
And a time so long ago
G chordG D chordD
When the sweet magnolias blossomed
A chordA D chordD
And the cotton fields were white as snow


[Chorus]

Mama said don't go near that river

Don't be hanging around old Catfish John

But come the morning I'd always be there

Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn
