A fellow isn’t thinkin’ mean. Out fishin’
His thoughts are mostly clean, Out fishin’
He doesn’t knock his fellow men Or harbor any grudges then; Out fishin’
The rich are comrades to the poor, Out fishin’
All brother of a common lure, Out fishin’
The urchin with the pin an’ string
Can chum with millionaires an’ any king;
Wain pride is a forgotten thing, Out fishin’
A feller’s glad to be a friend, Out fishin’
The helping hand he’ll always lend, Out fishin’
The brotherhood of rod an’ line An sky an’ stream is always fine
Men come real close to God’s design Out fishin’.
