Kitty Wells

Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American country music singer. Her 1952 hit recording, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts, and turned her into the first female country star. Her Top 10 hits continued until the mid-1960s, inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s. more »

Back about eighteen hundred and some a Louisiana couple had a red headed son
No name soothe him Jim Jack or Joe they just called him Billy Bayou
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go you're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
Billy Billy Bayou watch what you say a pretty girl'll get you one of these days
[ guitar ]
Billy was a boy kinda big for a size red hair and freckles and big blue eyes
Thirteen years from the day he was born Bill fought the battle of the Little Big Horn
Billy Billy Bayou...
[ guitar ]
One sad day Billy cried hoho I can whip the feathers of Geronimo
He smarted off the chief got mad this nearly ended our Louisiana lad
Billy Billy Bayou...
[ guitar ]
One day in 1878 a pretty girl walked through Billy's front gate
He didn't know whether to stand there or run
He would up married cause he did neighter one
Billy Billy Bayou...
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
