JAMBALAYA


Hank Williams



[C] Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me oh [G7] my oh.

Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the [C] bayou.

My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh [G7] my oh,

Son of a gun, we'll have big fun, on the [C] bayou.


[C] Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet [G7] gumbo,

'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma-cher-a-[C]-mio.

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be [G7] gay-o,

Son of a gun, we'll have big fun, on the [C] bayou.


[C] Thibodauz, Fountaineaux, the place is [G7] buzzin'.

Kinfolk come, to see Yvonne, by the [C] dozen.

Dress in style, go hog wild, me oh [G7] my oh.

Son of a gun, we'll have big fun, on the [G7] bayou.


[C] Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet [G7] gumbo,

'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma-cher-a-[C]-mio.

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be [G7] gay-o,

Son of a gun, we'll have big fun, on the [C] bayou.


[C] Settle down, far from town, get me a [G7] pirogue.

And I'll catch all the fish in the [C] bayou.

Swap my mon, to buy Yvonne, what she [G7] need-o.

Son of a gun, we'll have big fun, on the [C] bayou.


[C] Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet [G7] gumbo,

'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma-cher-a-[C]-mio.

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar, and be [G7] gay-o,

Son of a gun, we'll have big fun, on the [C] bayou.
