If there ever was a morning when the fish might bite it would be right now
Any other time wed have done had our lines cast out
Sipping on a jug of mommas sweet iced tea catchin' them old cat
Why couldnt today be like that?

I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we were sittin and fishin
And this wouldnt be so hard

It was my favorite thing that we used to do
But now we cant
I wish you were here
I wish this was a riverbank

Remember the day when I baited my hook with a chunk of ham
I got a big bite and he yanked the pole right out of my hands
You jumped up and you grabbed the net and we both jumped in
We got wet but we got him

I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we were sittin and fishin
And this wouldnt be so hard

It was my favorite thing that we used to do
But now we cant
I wish you were here
I wish this was a riverbank

I know you wouldnt want me just sittin' around and bein' sad
You taught me better than that
So Im leaving now gonna head on out and try to catch a few
And while Im there Ill cast a line for you

I wish this was a riverbank
Instead of a graveyard
I wish we were sittin and fishin
And this wouldnt be so damn hard

It was my favorite thing that we used to do
But now we cant
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish this was a riverbank
