EllieMay Kay - Girl With A Fishing Rod Lyrics

When I was a little bitty girl, my grandpa
Took me Sunday fishing at the river where I caught,
Catfish by the dozen and everyone was buzzing 'bout the girl,
The girl with the fishing rod.
And we laughed and we talked and I learned a lot.

I learned that People magazine, Cosmo, Seventeen
All those girls got nothin' on me,
I like a little bit of make-up, camouflage tank top
My dream boat on the nearest creek,
I can turn heads on the river bed
As good as those girls in Hollywood can,
Cause grandpa says nothing's closer to God
Than a girl with a fishing rod.

Growing up the girls at school were all cheer leading,
Well I was out with grandpa just a-casting and reeling,
The boys would all go fishing
And all the girls were wishing they where me,
The girl with the fishing rod.
I laughed, they cried cause I'd always get the guy.

I learned that People magazine, Cosmo, Seventeen
All those girls got nothin' on me,
I like a little bit of make-up, camouflage tank top
My dream boat on the nearest creek,
I can turn heads on the river bed
As good as those girls in Hollywood can,
Cause grandpa says nothing's closer to God
Than a girl with a fishing rod.

When I have a daughter I'm gonna raise her on the water,
Tell about grandpa, teach her about life
A little about love and the way that I...

I learned that People magazine, Cosmo, Seventeen
All those girls got nothin' on me,
I like a little bit of make-up, camouflage tank top
My dream boat on the nearest creek,
I can turn heads on the river bed
As good as those girls in Hollywood can,
Cause grandpa says nothing's closer to God
Than a girl with a fishing rod.

Yea grandpa says nothing's closer to God
Than a girl with a fishing rod.
