Well, I built me a raft and she's ready for floatin'

Catfish are jumpin'

Catfish jumpin'
I had this album on a 8 track. I know when I told my kids that said what is that. I remember sitting I'm my room when I was a kid and listening to the Doobie Brothers. Inspired my love for music. Good sound and album.
Sounds like a Tom Sawyer or huckleberry Finn song
I really love this song. It reminds me of my siblings back in the day. I love yall!!
Were im from this song is an anthem down south.

I used to have this 45 and played it until it was completely worn out
I like the guy who is singing come dance with yo daddy all night long, most men wish they could sing like that, almost a white Barry White.
One of the best sing-a-long songs of all time, up there with Seven Bridges Road by the Eagles as written by Steve Young, not the 49ers QB.
Fun to watch live the days of DB lots of memories.
Come on everybody sing it out loud. You know you want to. Peace.
This floats musically like the raft they are talking about. Love the vocals on this one.
just keep on rolling,life is sweet !
as important a song as has been written and sung
summertime 1969 santa cruz mts,the chateau liberte what fun...

catfish don't jump out of the water

Have always really liked this song. I like the way it moves along. The fiddles really evoke the sense of moving water - when I close my eyes it makes me see a raft floating downstream! Also really like the a cappella section.
I love this song... Can sing it all day!
Probably my favorite Doobie Bro's song :)
sweet tune!
Lovin' this!
Great tune!

This song reminds me of my mother. We used to rock out to this while she was driving us to school in the mornings. Mom rocks!
My brother died in 1975 , this was the last song he loved
God Bless my old friend Weston (r.i.p.) man he loved this song!!!
For whatever reason, this was our song to sing as we rode the chairlifts on our 1975 New Mexico and Colorado ski trips. Every time I hear it, that's where it takes me.
My frat couldn't stop singing this song! Go TKE!
This song reminds me of being in elementary school (that's when it was popular).
I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
