INTRO:
A   E7   E7 


VERSE 1:
          A              E7
I feel so bad I got a worried mind,
E7
I'm so lonesome all the time.
 Bm           E7                
Since I left my baby behind,
   A           E7    A   E7
On Blue Bayou.


VERSE 2:
A                
Saving nickles, saving dimes,
E7
Working 'til the sun don't shine.
                   Bm
Looking forward to happier times,
   A           E  A  
On Blue Bayou.


CHORUS 1:
           A
I'm going back someday, come what may.
   E7
To Blue Bayou, where the folks are fine.
                 Bm         A
And the world is mine, on Blue Bayou.
                                      A+
Where those fishing boats, with their sails afloat.
   D            Dm            A
If I could only see, that familiar sunrise.
        E7               A             E    A   
Through sleepy eyes, how happy I'd be.


VERSE 3:
A
   Go to See my baby again,
E7
  Go to be with some of my friends.

Maybe I'll feel better again,
   A              A7
On Blue Bayou.


VERSE 4:
A                
Saving nickles, saving dimes,
E7
Working 'til the sun don't shine.

Looking forward to happier times,
   A          
On Blue Bayou.


CHORUS 2:
 A         E7           A
I'm going back someday, come what may.
   E
To Blue Bayou, where the folks are fine.
                          A
And the world is mine, on Blue Bayou.
                                      A+
Where those fishing boats, with their sails afloat.
   D            Dm         A
If I could only see, that familiar sunrise.
        E7             A                
Through sleepy eyes, how happy I'd be.

CODA:
         A                 
Oh, that boy of mine, by my side,
    D                   E7
The silver moon and the evening tide.
    A                    E7           
Oh, some sweet day gonna take away.
     A                                 
This hurting inside.
     E                  E7
Well I’ll never be blue my dreams come true,
   Bm    E7       A  Asus2 A
On Blue Bay - ou.
