D6
I feel so bad Ive got a worried mind
B
Im so lonesome all the time
A                              D6
Since I left my baby behind on blue bayou
 
D6                            B
Saving nickels, saving dimes, working till the sun don't shine
A                                   D6
Looking forward to happier times on blue bayou
 
D                                       B
Im going back some day come what may to blue bayou
A                                               D
Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on blue bayou
D7                                                   G
All those fishing boats with their sails afloat if I could only 
Gm
see
D6                            B      A         D6
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes, how happy I'd be
 
D6
Go to see my baby again
B
And to be with some of my friends
A                          D6
Maybe I'd be happy then on blue bayou
 
D6                            B
Saving nickels, saving dimes, working till the sun don't shine
A                                   D6
Looking forward to happier times on blue bayou
 
D                                     B
Im going back some day, gonna stay on blue bayou
          A                                       D
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on blue bayou
         D7                          G                   Gm
Oh, that girl of mine by my side the silver moon and the evening tide
D                        A                     D
Oh, some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin inside
B                     A                   G    A   D6
Ill never be blue, my dreams come true on blue bayou
