BLUE BAYOU      -       Linda Ronstadt



 B                     B6     B              
  I feel so bad, I got a worried mind;
 F#             F#7        
  I'm so lonesome all the time
 F#             F#7          B               
 Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou;
 B
  Saving nickels, saving dimes, 
 F#
  Working till the sun don't shine,
 F#                F#7             B             
  Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou.

chorus:
         B           B                 F#7              
I'm going back someday, come what may, to Blue Bayou,
         F#7sus4                               
Where the folks are fine, 
       F#7             B                 
and the world is mine on Blue Bayou.
           B7       
Where those fishing boats with their sails afloat, 
  E           Em           
If I could only see
        B                     F#            
That fa- miliar sunrise through sleepy eyes, 
   B      
how happy I'd be.

 B           B6    
  Gonna see my baby again;
 F#           F#7     
  Gonna be with some of my friends 
 F#             F#7       
  Maybe I'll feel better again 
  B      
on Blue Bayou
 B 
  Saving nickels, saving dimes, 
 F#
  Working till the sun don't shine,
 F#
  Looking forward to happier times 
  B   
on Blue Bayou.

chorus:
         B           B                 F#7              
I'm going back someday, come what may, to Blue Bayou,
         F#7sus4                               
Where the folks are fine, 
       F#7             B                 
and the world is mine on Blue Bayou.
           B7       
Where those fishing boats with their sails afloat, 
  E           Em           
If I could only see
        B                     F#            
That fa- miliar sunrise through sleepy eyes, 
   B      
how happy I'd be.

Break:   B ? F#7 ? F#7sus4 ? F#7 ?B

        B7    
Oh that    man of mine by my side,
   E                  Em               
The silver moon and the evening tide;
  B                    F#             B                          
Oh, some sweet day, gonna take away this hurtin' inside.
        F#               F#6        F#           
Well I'd never be blue, my dreams come true
   F#7       B                    
On Blue  Bay - ou.//

Change "... with that girl of mine by my side" to "... that mand of mine " if you want it to be the way Ronstadt sings the song.

thanks for the comment. I listened again and my line's wrong. I don't know if there are more versions (studio) but I hear "... boy of mine..." so i'll change it to that.

Personally I don't hear the B6 or F#7 in the verses, at least in the Linda version. Here's your version trimmed down a bit in case anyone else finds it useful:

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

Chorus:
B F#
I'm going back someday, come what may, to Blue Bayou
B
Where the folks are fine, and the world is mine on Blue Bayou.
B7
Where those fishing boats with their sails afloat
E Em
If I could only see
B F#
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes
B
how happy I'd be.

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

[Chorus]

[instrumental over first 2 lines of chorus]
[In melody of chorus:]
B7
Oh that boy of mine by my side,
E Em
The silver moon and the evening tide;
B F# B
Oh, some sweet day, gonna take away this hurtin' inside.

Ending:
F#
Well I'd never be blue, my dreams come true
B
On Blue Bayou.
