Jeff Bates - Riverbank Lyrics

If there was ever a morning when the fish migh bite
It'll be right now

Any other time we'd done had our lines cast out
Sippin' on a jug of mama's sweet iced tea
Catchin' them 'ol cat
Why couldn't today be like that

I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we we're sittin' and fishin' and this wouldn't be so hard
It was my favorite thing that we used to do, but now we can't
I wish you we're here and I wish this we're a riverbank

Remember the day when I baited my hook with a chunk of ham

I got a big bite and he yanked the pole right outta my hand
Well you jumped up and you grabbed the net and we both jumped in

Yeah, we got wet oh but we got him

Man I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we we're sittin' and fishin' and this wouldn't be so hard
It was my favorite thing that we used to do, but now we can't
I wish you we're here and I wish this we're a riverbank

I know you wouldn't want me sittin' round and bein' sad
You taught me better than that
So I'm leavin' now gonna head on out
And try to catch a few and while I'm there
I'll cast a line for you

Man I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we we're sittin' and fishin' and this wouldn't be so hard
It was my favorite thing that we used to do, but now we can't

I wish you we're here
I wish you we're here
I wish you we're here

And I wish this we're a riverbank
