More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

      F       F/C            F       F/C
    I feel so bad I've got a worried mind
 F         F/C      F       F/C
    I'm so lonesome all the time
C7/G        C7     C7/G    C7
    Since I left my baby behind
        F      F/C   (C  F  C  Eb  F)
    On Blue Bayou
    Saving nickels, saving dimes
    Working 'till the sun don't shine
    Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou

          F
I'm going back some day, come what may
        C7
To Blue Bayou
          C7
Where you sleep all day and the catfish play
        F
On Blue Bayou
          F                         A7
All those fishing boats, with their sails afloat
   Bb           Bbm
If I could only see
     F                         C7
That familiar sunrise, through sleepy eyes
    F
How happy I'd be

    Go to see my baby again
    And to be with some of my friends
    Maybe I'd be happy then on Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day gonna stay on Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine, and the world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Oh, that girl of mine by my side
The silver moon and the evening tide
Oh, some sweet day gonna take away t
This hurtin' inside

I'll never be blue
My dreams come true on Blue Bayou
