[Verse 1]
         E          
For fourteen years I had a best friend black lab
A
.Hoggin' up the bench in a crew cab
E
.Head hangin' on a two lane breeze
A
.Burnin' up tires just her and me
          B 
She went everywhere I went
          A
Till our time was through
       B                   A
I said my goodbye, didn't know what to do
[Chorus]
           E
So I went fishin'
       B
Wet a line
     C#m              A
Let all the time just pass me by
           E          B
I drank a beer, in a boat
        C#m                  A
Really learned how to let a good one go
 E                        B 
Watched the sky fade from red to blue
   C#m                      A
Talked to God there for an hour or two
 E                            B                 C#m     A
Found a little healing at the end of a buzzbait hittin'...
I went fishin'

[Verse 2]
      E
Mary wasn't my first riverside kiss I ever had
A
.But I damn sure wanted her to be my last
E
.Yeah love like I never dreamed
A
.Had me thinkin' bout a diamond ring
     B                     A
But she had plans, that I didn't fit in
        B 
By the time her plane was takin' off
        A
I was droppin' that motor in

[Chorus]
           E
And I went fishin'
       B
Wet a line
     C#m              A
Let all the time just pass me by
           E          B
I drank a beer, in a boat
        C#m                  A
Really learned how to let a good one go
 E                        B 
Watched the sky fade from red to blue
   C#m                      A
Talked to God there for an hour or two
 E                            B                 C#m     A
Found a little healing at the end of a buzzbait hittin'...
I went fishin'

[Bridge]
     F#m         
I've been to the bar to try to forget
  G#m 
Drove around for miles when nothin' made sense
           A
But when I needed to face the gone
         B 
When I needed to start movin' on

[Chorus]
         E
I went fishin'
       B
Wet a line
     C#m              A
Let all the time just pass me by
           E          B
I drank a beer, in a boat
        C#m                  A
Really learned how to let a good one go
 E                        B 
Watched the sky fade from red to blue
   C#m                      A
Talked to God there for an hour or two
 E                            B                 C#m     A
Found a little healing at the end of a buzzbait hittin'...

[Outro]
       F#m                          G#m                  A
When I had to shut the whole world off, even just for a minute
       E       B/D# A
I went fishin'.......
              E    B/D#  A
Yeah I went fishin'........
