Lyrics
The Catfish Nightmare Blues
Words and music by Gordon McLeod August 8 2009

Late last night I went to bed
I pulled those covers over my head
Fell asleep like I was dead, but my sleep was interrupted.
I dreamt a dream that terrorized
Long slimy whiskers, buggy eyes,
A gaping mouth of awful size, made me so disgusted.

O Lawdy Lawdy, Daddy G,
Get that catfish ‘way from me
Can’t you see he’s scarin’ me and he’ll disturb my snooze.
Hey there Daddy, Daddy G
Get that catfish ‘way from me
Ain’t you got the sense to see I got the catfish nightmare blues.

It’s all because my Daddy G
Felt the time was right for me
To see things I’m too young to see that lurk there in the deep.
He took me to the fishin’ hole,
The water boiled, the catfish rolled,
Scared me so now bless my soul I see catfish in my sleep

O Lawdy Lawdy, Daddy G,
Get that catfish ‘way from me
Can’t you see he’s scarin’ me and he’ll disturb my snooze.
Hey there Daddy, Daddy G
Get that catfish ‘way from me
Ain’t you got the sense to see I got the catfish nightmare bluesChorus


O do you think that I’m immune
From the terrors of cartoons?
Big o’l heads like ripe balloons freak my little mind.
It’s bad enough I know they’re there
Without you draggin’ them up here
Make me soil my underwear and old before my time.

O Lawdy Lawdy, Daddy G,
Get that catfish ‘way from me
Can’t you see he’s scarin’ me and he’ll disturb my snooze.
Hey there Daddy, Daddy G
Get that catfish ‘way from me
Ain’t you got the sense to see I got the catfish nightmare blues
