Gone Fishin

Louis Armstrong

A7/#5  D6     B7            Em7            A7
Gone fishin' -- there's a sign upon your door,
A7/#5    D6    B7            Em7         A7
?Gone fishin'? -- you ain't workin' anymore.
D               D7            G               Gm7
There's your hoe out in the sun, where you left a row half done;
E7              (III)      A    Em7        A7
You claim that hoein' ain't no fun -- you ain't got no am - bi - tion.

A7/#5  D6   B7     G     B7   A7
Gone fishin' by a shady, wady pool;
A7/#5  D6  B7        G       G/F#     Em A7
I'm wishin' I could be that kind of fool.
D                D7           G              Gm7
I'd say no more work for mine, on my door I'd hang a sign
  D     B7   Em7     A7      D
?Gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'.?

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 am - bi - tion.

Gone fishin', got your hound dog by your side
Gone fishin', fleas are bitin' at his hide
Got my hat and got my pole, headed for the fishin' hole,
Gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'.
