Hi Joe Offer,

In that Silver Burdett music textbook series, is there a song about fishing. . .

Fishermen are sitting by the lake...by the lake
Waiting for the fish to take their bait...take their bait
Not a ripple, not a sound
Quietness is all around
Fishermen are sitting by the lake...by the lake.

Thanks!

Here goes, Rudy:

THE FISHERMEN
(words by Evelyn H. Hunt; Bohemian Folk Tune)

Fishermen are sitting by the lake, by the lake
Waiting for the fish to take their bait, take their bait.
Not a nibble, not a sound, quietness is all around.
Fishermen are sitting by the lake, by the lake
Waiting for the fish to take their bait, take their bait.

Slowly sinks the sun behind the hill, behind the hill.
Evening now has come and all is still, all is still.
Rods and reels are put away, no more fishing for today.
Slowly sinks the sun behind the hill, behind the hill.
Evening now has come and all is still, all is still.


from the 1956 Silver Burdett second-grade school songbook, Music In Our Town.

Can anybody identify the bohemian folk song that the tune comes from?
