Track Name: Catfish Blues Revisited
I would ruther, be a little catfish
So I could swim way down
In the sea-ee
I would have somebody, somebody
Settin' out hooks for me
Settin' out a hook for me
A hook for -

You know I went
To my baby's house
She told me to sit down
On her step
'Sir, you can come right on in
Because my
Husband just now left
He just now left
He just now -

An I, asked my baby
To let me sit down
'Side her bed
Turn on yo' heater, baby
'Till it turn cherry red
Cherry red
Red an cherry red

That's the reason I ruther
Be a little catfish
So I could swim way down
In the sea-ee
I would have netted
Some of these women
Settin' out a line for me
Settin' out their line for me
A line for -

You know I went
To the church house
And they called on
Me to pray-ay
I got down on my knees
But I didn't, no
Have no word to say
Not a word to say
No word to say

That's the reason I ruther
Be a little catfish
So I could swim
Way down in the sea-ee
I would have somebody, somebody
Settin' out a line for me
Settin' out a line for me
A line for -

I don't wanna
Be no tadpole
And I don't want ta be
No bullfrog
An if I can't be
Be your catfish
I won't swim at all
No, I won't swim at all
No, swim at -

That's the reason I want ta
Be a little catfish
So I could swim way down
In the sea-ee
I would have these goodlookin' women
Settin' out a hook for me
Settin' out a hook for me
A hook for. -
Track Name: Butcher Boy Revisited
She went upstairs to make her bed
And not one word to her mother she said
Her mother she went upstairs too
Said, "Daughter, oh daughter, what troubles you?"

"Oh mother, oh mother, I cannot tell
That railroad boy I love so well
He's courted me my life away
And now at home he will not stay
There is a place in London town
Where that railroad boy goes and sits down
And he takes that strange girl on his knee
And he tells to her what he won't tell me"

Father he came in from work
He said, "Where's daughter, she looks so hurt"
He went upstairs to give her hope
But he found her hanging from a rope
He took his knife and cut her down
And in her bosom these words they found:

"Dig my grave both wide and deep
Put a marble slab at my head and feet
And over my bones put a snow white dove
So this world can see that I died for love"
Track Name: Peace in the Valley Revisited
Oh well, I'm tired and so weary
But I must go alone
Till the lord comes and calls, calls me away, oh yes
Well the morning's so bright
And the lamp is alight
And the night, night is as black as the sea, oh yes
There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me
Well the bear will be gentle
And the wolves will be tame
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb, oh yes
And the beasts from the wild
Shall be lit by a child
And I'll be changed, changed from this creature that I am, oh yes
There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me
