    C                            G7
Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh
   G7                                 C
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou

My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh

Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou
 
[Chorus]
   C                                  G7
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo

'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma chers amio
     C                             G7
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
    G7                                  C
Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou

kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
      C                                G7
Dress in style and go hog wild, and be gay-o

Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo

Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou.

[Verse 3]
  C                             G7
Later on, swap my mon, get me a pirogue
    G7                             C
And I'll catch all the fish on the bayou
     C                              G7
Swap my mon, to buy Yvonne what she need-oh
    G7                                 C
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou

[Chorus]
   C                                  G7
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo

'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma chers amio.
     C                             G7
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o,
    G7                                  C
Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou.

Love the chords and lyrics except pirogue is pronounced like you said but with a G at the end. It's a boat they use in the bayou that's propelled with a pole instead of a paddle, hence "pole the pirogue,"

Thanks for these explanations and advice . I've also learned through wikipedia that "jambalaya" in indian dialect means fiesta , party, fête , bringue ...
an occasion to sing this nice song with friends
