To match with Linda Ronstadt's version please use a capo on the 2nd fret! 


[Verse 1]

  A                A6       A
I feel so bad, I got a worried mind;
E                   E7
I'm so lonesome all the time
E                E7               A           
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou;
A
Saving nickels, saving dimes, 
E
Working till the sun don't shine,
E               E7                     A
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou.


[Refrain]

          A            A        A7           E7
I'm going back someday, come what may, to Blue Bayou,
         E7sus4     E7               E7              A
Where the folks are fine, and the world is mine on Blue Bayou.
            A                       A7
Where those fishing boats with their sails afloat,
  D        D   Dm
If I could only see
      A                        E              A       A
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes, how happy I'd be.


[Bridge]

A                A
Gonna see my baby again;
E                    E7
Gonna be with some of my friends ¬
E                  E7             A 
Maybe I'll feel better again on Blue Bayou
A                     A
Saving nickels, saving dimes, 
E
Working till the sun don't shine,
E                                    A
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou.


[Refrain]

         A               A7
Oh that girl of mine by my side,
     D                  Dm
The silver moon and the evening tide;
    A          A          E              A
Oh, some sweet day, gonna take away this hurtin' inside.
          E       E         E6         E
Well I'd never be blue, my dreams come true
  E7  E7    A    A
On Blue  Bay - ou.

Linda Ronstadt does not sing "... with that girl of mine by my side."
Try "... that man of mine."

One of her versions says, "with that boy of mine, by my side,"

I used Roy Orbisons version to get the progression

Been using B and F# instead of the main chord with Cm for the other parts
