LyricsEverytime PlayedSong History

Fishwater
Transcribed by: Kevin Watson
In tribute of the sit 'n ski tour, here's an acoustic
arrangement of the New Orleans anthem, and just in time for
the holidays.  I foresee everyone playin' this for granny
by the chestnutted fire.  Happy Holidays, I hope everyone
has a good time at the shows; I'll be on the beach.

|-0----0------0--0--0---0--3--2---|
|-1----1------1--1--1---1--4--3---|
|-0----0------0--0--0---0--3--2---|Am7 theme
|-2----2------2--2--2---2---------|
|-0----0----0-0--3--0---0---------|
|----3---0-3----------3-----------|

Verse 1:
Four train days                                     -|
Get me back to New Orleans                           |
Drink more fishwater there                           |
Than any whale's mama ever seen                      |  Am7
Alright tonight                                      | theme
I've been fueling my dreams eatin greens and beans   |
When I get back down there                           |
I'm gonna drink more fish stew                       |
Than all the big fishes do                          -|

Chorus:
                 C
And I still want more
             Am7
I still want more
            C
            more
             Am7
I still want more

Verse 2:
Gimme tonight                                       -|
Gonna dream my way on back                           |
Spend my life down there                             |  Am7
Down on that bourbon street                          | theme
Watch my money, and mind my leg down in New Orleans  |
Can't tell which mens turns womens there             |
And which womens just turns mean                    -|

(Chorus)


Now we get to the jam part, one cool thing that Schools
used to do is play the stanza bass line to "we want the
funk" right chere, and on the acoustic it goes

'makemyfunkthepfunk' iwanttogetfunkedup'
|-0-0-0---0-0-0------0-0-0-0--0----------|

Here's the outro that Houser and Schools plays
