Frankie Lyr Req: Catfish Blues / I Wish I Was a Catfish (10) RE: Lyr Req: i wish i was a catfish 13 Nov 99

Dave Van Ronk does a version of the Jim Jackson standard from the twenties "Kansas City Blues" on his IN THE TRADITION album which contains the line "Wish I was a catfish swimming in the sea, I'd a have all the women swimming right after me, And then I'd move to Kansas City...". I don't recall if the original contained that line.
