Adkins, Trace - Just Fishin' Lyrics

I’m lost in her there holdin’ that pink rod and reel
She’s doin’ almost everything but sittin’ still
Talkin’ ‘bout her ballet shoes and training wheels
And her kittens
And she thinks we’re just fishin’

I say, “Daddy loves you, baby” one more time
She says, “I know. I think I got a bite.”
And all this laughin’, cryin, smilin’ dyin’ here inside’s
What I call, livin’

And she thinks we’re just fishin’ on the riverside
Throwin’ back what we could fry
Drownin’ worms and killin’ time
Nothin’ too ambitious
She ain’t even thinkin’ ‘bout
What’s really goin’ on right now
But I guarantee this memory’s a big’in
And she thinks we’re just fishin’

She’s already pretty, like her mama is
Gonna drive the boys all crazy
Give her daddy fits
And I better do this every chance I get
‘Cause time is tickin’
(Yeah it is)

And she thinks we’re just fishin’ on the riverside
Throwin’ back what we could fry
Drownin’ worms and killin’ time
Nothin’ too ambitious
She ain’t even thinkin’ ‘bout
What’s really goin’ on right now
But I guarantee this memory’s a big’in
And she thinks we’re just fishin’

She ain’t even thinkin’ ‘bout
What’s really goin’ on right now
But I guarantee this memory’s a big’in
And she thinks we’re just fishin’
Yeah, aww, she thinks we’re just fishin’
We ain’t only fishin’
(This ain’t about fishin’)

    "This ain't about fishin'..."
    No Sir. This is about those precious moments when you're a kid and your dad holds your hand...
    My dad is no longer in this world but I remember when I was a kid and he held my hand...
    Why do we treasure those special moments when they're for ever gone?

  85. jim catalfamo

    been looking for more and more folk, country, indie songs that have a soul, that have life and i came across this song and let me tell you i work to give my family a good home. yes, we had our moments but when i turn 50 and took a trip to Utah i could believe what i was seeing. when i got home i apologized to my sons. life not just about having a home, working and saving raining. now i go Quote-unquote "fishin" very chance i get. i got nobody to thank but our creator for reveling himself to me. how true this song is. everybody need to go fishin as much as they can. get off the couch. the fish are biting today! they might not tomorrow.
