Hank Williams Jambalaya (on The Bayou) Lyrics

Last updated: 02/21/2012 10:00:00 AM

Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me-oh my-oh.
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou.
My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me-oh my-oh
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou.

[chorus]
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and a filé gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma chère amie-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou.

[fiddle]

From Thibodaux to Fontaineaux the place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen.
Dress in style and go hog-wild, me-oh my-oh
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou.

[chorus]

[fidddle]

[chorus]

(additional verses not in Old Hank's version:)
Settle down far from town get me a pirogue
And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou

[chorus]

[fiddle]

Later on, swap my mon, get me a pirogue.
And I'll catch all the fish on the bayou.
Swap my mon, to buy Yvonne what she need-oh.
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou

[chorus]
