Muskie Blues, you know I got those Muskie Blues.
I'm gonna catch me a muskie if it's the last thing that I do.

The fish of 10,000 casts, I'm on 9,999.
I've had plenty of follows but nothing on the line.
Maybe I'll use a top-water over by the brook.
Wait a minute something's goin' on, I'd better set the hook.

It's time to get down to business, I've got a muskie on the line.
It's pulling me harder, it's a big fish I ain't lyin'.
It's heading out towards the open water, this one's a real fighter.
But I horse it back in, looks like it's a tiger.

Let me give you a warning this fish is mighty bad.
You put your fingers by it's mouth you might not get 'em back.
What to do baby?
I'll tell you if you please.
Put that fish back in the water, practice catch & release.
