Până la vară: “The Catfish Blues” – Robert Petway, 1941

20 Feb, 2012 |

Well I lay down down last night : well I tried to take my rest
Notion struck me last night baby : I believe I take a stroll out west
Well if I were a catfish mama : I said swimming deep down in the deep blue sea
All these gals now sweet mama : I said now setting out hooks for me
Well I went down yeah down to the churchhouse : yes well they called on me to pray
Got on my knees now mama : I didn’t know not not a word to say
Somebody write write me a letter baby : I’m going to write it just you see
See if my baby my baby : do she thinking of little old thing of me


About the author

Singur cum umblam atunci pe Somes, auzeam ce vorbesc aia de pe partea cealalta. Si la un moment dat aud pe unu zicand: “Uite ma pe ala, ca da la pastrav!” M-am gandit “Uite ma ce face bautura din om” si abia pe urma mi-a cazut fisa. Am dat vegetatia la o parte sa pot vedea in josul apei si acolo era Romi bagat in mijlocul Somesului.
