Fish Don't Bite
music: Dean Smith, lyrics: Dean Smith

I went down to where the river sleeps
For a float trip we've been planning for weeks
Me and Jimmy'd been friends since we met in high school
He's fixin' cars and I'm sellin' tools

It was an old John boat with two left oars
Me and the fish were gonna even the score
Jimmy's sittin' kinda quiet in the mist with the birds
As long as I've known he's never short on words

Well he finally left loose about his Sally Lynn
I didn't want to know more but she was livin' in sin
This was TMI, I didn't want to forget
But I had to say something that I wouldn't regret

Something I learned every time I was wronged
Once you set things right they don't stay that way long
Keep your eye on the cooler and your line in the water
Cause the Fish Don't Bite when you're watchin' the bobber

It flowed all over like a broken downspout
Bubblin' up inside, it just had to come out
I cancelled my plans for a peaceful retreat
While little Sally Lynn was being ground up meat

Well it didn't take long and we were in it real thick
I had to say somethin' and it had to be quick
Couldn't be his daddy, say "you did it again?"
Cause when this storm blowed through I still wanted a friend

Something I learned every time I was wronged
Once you set things right they don't stay that way long
Keep your eyes on the cooler and your line in the water
Cause the Fish Don't Bite when you're watchin' the bobber
