I feel so sad got a worried mind,
I'm so lonesome all the time,
Since I left my baby behind, on Blue Bayou.
Saving nickels saving dimes,
Work until the sun don't shine,
Looking forward to happier times, on Blue Bayou.

[Chorus]
I'm going back someday, come what may, to Blue Bayou,
Where the folks are fine, 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.

Want to see my baby again, 
Want to be with some of my friends,
Maybe I'll feel better again on Blue Bayou.
Saving nickles saving dimes,
Work until the sun don't shine,
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou.

[Chorus]

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.
