[Intro]
D A D

[Verse 1]
D
Back about eighteen hundred and some
                         A          D
A Louisiana couple had a red-headed son
D
No name suited him, Jim, Jack or Joe
                     A       D
They just called him Billy Bayou

[Chorus]
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
          A                     D
If you're walkin' on quicksand, walk slow
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
  A                       D
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

[Solo]
D A D

[Verse 2]
D                              
Billy was a boy, kinda big for his size
                          A        D 
Red hair and freckles and big blue eyes
D
Thirteen years from the day he was born
                               A          D
Billy fought the battle of the little big horn

[Chorus]
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
          A                     D
If you're walkin' on quicksand, walk slow
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
  A                      D
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

[Solo]
D A D

[Verse 3]
D
One sad day Billy cried ho ho
                               A       D
I can lick the feathers off of gee-ron-imo
D
He started off, the chief got mad
                      A         D
This nearly ended our Louisiana lad

[Chorus]
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
          A                     D
If you're walkin' on quicksand, walk slow
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
  A                       D
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

[Solo]
D A D
 
[Verse 4]
D
One day in eighteen seventy-eight
                             A            D
A pretty girl walked through Bill's front gate
D
He didn't know whether to stand there, or run
                              A             D
He wound up married 'cause he didn't either one

[Chorus]
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
          A                     D
If you're walkin' on quicksand, walk slow
G                   D
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
  A                       D
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
  A                       D
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
