lyrics

George Watson / Barry Fetterolf / Gary Burr

I always loved to fish
Yeah, fishing soothed my soul
My summers filled with rocky streams
And fishing holes
When my country called
I left those streams behind
To play in a sandbox with some friends of mine
I bought a brand new rod and then
I was 8 years old again
At my favorite place in a whole new different time

We were all proud to serve
But don’t we all deserve
To find our lives and set our wounds aside
Me I wade in the water
And cast a fly

I’ve lost a lot of lines
The current swept away
But that keeps me in the moment
And sweeps away my yesterdays
I catch them and release them
And thank them for their fight
It helps me count my blessings
When I turn out the lights
So when it’s cloudy I’ll be here
Where there’s no guilt and there’s no fear
And I’ll think about the ones we left behind

We were all proud to serve
But don’t we all deserve
To find our lives and set our wounds aside
Me I wade in the water
Yes I wade in the water
Me I wade in the water
And cast a fly
