John Prine did this song. I have searched the internet - beginning with Mudcat - and beginning with dogpile.com. etc. ... But to no avail. I'd love to have your help.

Also looking for Someone's in the Kitchen with Dinah.

Thank you.

Glenda

Thanks, Stewie, for both!

We quickly went to both sites and added the songs to our books. They are just notebooks we use when we practice in our "studio" - the 2nd bedroom in our home - we didn't need 2 bedrooms we just needed a room to make our music and stack up all our guitars!!

FISH AND WHISTLE
(John Prine)

I been thinking lately about the people I meet,
The car wash on the corner, and the hole in the street,
The way my ankles hurt with shoes on my feet,
And I'm wondering if I'm gonna see tomorrow.

Father, forgive us for what we must do.
You forgive us. We'll forgive you.
We'll forgive each other till we both turn blue.
Then we'll whistle and go fishing in heaven.

I was in the army but I never dug a trench.
I used to bust my knuckles on a monkey wrench.
Then I'd go to town and drink and give the girls a pinch,
But I don't think they ever even noticed me.

Fish and whistle. Whistle and fish.
Eat everything that they put on your dish.
And when we get through we'll make a big wish.
That we never have to do this again. again? Again?

On my very first job, I said "thank you" and "please."
They made me scrub a parking lot down on my knees.
Then I got fired for being scared of bees.
And they only give me fifty cents an hour.
