Story behind the song
I wrote the song hoping I'd get to sing it at the Festival..I didn't get to do that but I called a local radio station,sang the song over the phone to Steve Rouse,a local radio personality who is a Baltimore icon. He had his sidekick.Maynard(currently the Co Host of the Ed Norris show) in the studio,play guitar along with me and put it on the air "LIVE".I was laying in bed 9 am reading the lyrics that I hadn't memorized yet. Singing through a totally hoarse voice over a telephone.Actually what you hear in the song is their response to it the next morning at RUSH HOUR.And no I wasn't drunk. lmao "I BOUGHT THAT PHONE IN A PAWN SHOP" "THAT'S THE ONLY WAY I COULD SING THE BLUES OVER IT"
Lyrics
Don't you bother me about anything today. I don't care what you do and I don't care what you say. I'm goin fishin', fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. Whatever you need from me is gonna have to wait. I got a cooler full of beer and a bucket of fresh cut bait I'm gonna catch me some fish, oh baby! Its gona be great. I'm goin fishin'!, fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. Makin up stories 'bout the ones that got away. When I go fishin', fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. Don't want no fussin', dont want no fightin'. Leave me alone while the fish are bitin', come on!, Baby I'll show you the way, to go fishin', fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. When I start to fishin', I just can't stop. I hook-em on the bottom and I reel-em to the top. Oh baby!, It's surely gonna' make my day. When I go fishin', fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. If I get a little tired, I stretch out in my cabin, Get a little rest, wake-up and do some crabbin', Oh baby! Just can't wait to get away, when I go fishin', fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. I might catch 1, I might catch 2, might not catch nothin', or I might catch a few but I don't care! Just as long as I can get away, when I go fishin', fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. Baby I'm goin fishin'!, fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. Makin up stories 'bout the ones that got away. When I go fishin', fishin' on Chesapeake Bay. Hook line n sinker baby!! Rod Reel and tackle!!
