VERSE

He sits on the back deck of his fishing shack
where the salmon runs every fall,
He grinds out his cigarette
knowing it’s some kind of offense
But it wouldn’t be the first one, ya’ll

CHORUS

Is he really an innocent
Or a guilty bystander
Answer lies in the fishing shack
But its walls will never tell

VERSE

His wife sits in her fancy hilltop house
She keeps him in the dark,
The story she will not reveal
He hides out in the fishing shack
Just to stay away from her

CHORUS

Is he really an innocent
Or a guilty bystander
Answer lies in the fishing shack
But its walls will never tell

VERSE

The one thing he is guilty of, she never lets him forget
Seducing her from another, he’s the first to admit
He’s always liked the ladies, that’s his biggest flaw
He pleads the fifth as he drinks a fifth
In his good ole fishing shack where the salmon run every fall

CHORUS

Is he really an innocent
Or a guilty bystander
Answer lies in the fishing shack
But its walls will never tell

Original

He sits on the back deck of his fishing shack
where the salmon runs every fall,
He grinds out his cigarette
knowing it’s some kind of offense
But it wouldn’t be the first one, ya’ll

Is he really an innocent
Or a guilty bystander
Was he an accomplice
Was the master mind someone else?
The answer lies in the fishing shack
But its walls will never tell

His wife sits in her fancy hilltop house
She keeps him in the dark,
The story she will not reveal
He hides out in the fishing shack
Just to stay away from her

The one thing he is guilty of, she never lets him forget
Seducing her from another, he’s the first to admit
He’s always liked the ladies, that’s his biggest flaw
He pleads the fifth as he drinks a fifth
In his good ole fishing shack where the salmon run every fall
