Verse 2:

	(Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)

	[band enters]

	 F
	Savin' nickels, savin' dimes
	C7/G
	     Workin' 'til the sun don't shine
	                                     F          [N.C.]
	Lookin' forward to happier times on Blue Bayou

Bridge 1:

	           F                                C7
	I'm goin' back some day, come what may, to Blue Bayou
	                                                 F
	Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on Blue Bayou
	           F7
	All those fishin' boats with their sails afloat
	   Bb           Bbm
	If I could only see
	      F                     C7              F               [N.C.]
	That familiar sunrise thru sleepy eyes how happy I'd be

Verse 3:

	(Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)
	Oh, to see my baby again
	And to be with some of my friends
	Maybe I'd be happy then on Blue Bayou

Bridge 2:

	I'm goin' back some day, gonna stay on Blue Bayou
	Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
	Ah, that girl of mine by my side
	The silver moon and the evening tide
	Ah, some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin' inside

Coda:

	      C7                                [N.C.]
	I'll never be blue, my dreams come true
	    Gm     C7   F
	On Blue   Bay...ou

	(Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)  [repeat to fade]
