C
CI feel so bad I've got a worried mind
G7
G7I'm so lonesome all the time
C
Since I left my baby behind on CBlue Bayou
C
CSavin' nickels, savin' dimes
G7
G7Workin' till the sun don't shine
C
Lookin' forward to happier times on CBlue Bayou
CG7
CI'm goin' back some day, come what may, to G7Blue Bayou
C
Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on CBlue Bayou
C7FFm
All those fishin' boats with their C7sails afloat, if FI could only Fmsee
CG7C
That Cfamiliar sunrise through G7sleepy eyes how Chappy I'd be
C
COh, to see my baby again
G7
G7And to be with some of my friends
C
Maybe I'd be happy then on CBlue Bayou
CG7
CI'm goin' back some day, gonna stay on G7Blue Bayou
C
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on CBlue Bayou
C7
Ah, that girl of mine C7by my side
FFm
The Fsilver moon and the Fmevening tide
CG7C
Ah, Csome sweet day gonna G7take away this Churtin' inside
CG7C
I'll Cnever be blue, my G7dreams come true on Blue BaCyou---
