I feel so bad I got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time Since I left my baby behind On Blue Bayou  Saving nickles, saving dimes Working til the sun don't shine Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou 
I'm going back someday Come what may
To Blue Bayou Where the folks are fun
And the world is mine
On Blue Bayou Where those fishing boats With their sails afloat If I could only see
That familiar sunrise Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be
 Gonna see my baby again Gonna be with some of my friends Maybe I'll feel better again
On Blue Bayou  Saving nickles saving dimes Working til the sun don't shine Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou 
I'm going back someday Come what may
To Blue Bayou Where the folks are fun
And the world is mine
On Blue Bayou Where those fishing boats With their sails afloat If I could only see
That familiar sunrise Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be

Oh that boy of mine
By my side
The silver moon
And the evening tide
Oh some sweet day Gonna take away
This hurting inside
Well I'll never be blue
My dreams come true
On Blue Bayou
