  • Well I love her
    But I love to fish
    I spend all day out on this lake
    And hell is all I catch

    But today she met me at the door
    Said I would have to choose
    If I hit that fishin hole today
    She'd be packin all her things
    And she'd be gone by noon

    Well I'm gonna miss her
    When I get home...etc.
