Intro
 
I (C) don‰t smoke I don‰t shoot smack
But I got a spicy monkey riding on my back
Don‰t eat beignets too much sugar and dough
But (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
Yes (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
 
It started in my grandma‰s in her kitchen by the sea
She warned me when where she told me "son the first one‰s free"
It hit me like a rock or some Taekwondo
Cause (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
Oh yeah (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
 
A (F) piece of french bread with which to wipe my bowl
(C) Good for the body, good for the soul
It‰s a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex
(G) You should never know when you‰re gonna get it next
At (C) midnight in the Quarter or noon in Thibodaux
(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
Yes, (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
 
I‰m not (C) talking quesadillas or a dozen Krispy Kremes
Or a pile of caviar that‰s a rich man‰s dream
No banana split or filet of pompano
No, (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
Yeah, (G) I will play for gu(C)mbo
 
Solo
 
A (F) piece of french bread with which to wipe my bowl
(C) Good for the body, good for the soul
It‰s a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex
(G) You should never know when you‰re gonna get it next
 
(C) Maybe it‰s that sausage or those pretty pink shrimp
Or that popcorn rice that makes me blow up like a blimp
Maybe it‰s that voodoo from Marie Laveau
But (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
Hey (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
 
Now the (C) sauce boss makes his cookin‰ on the stage
Singing and a-picking for his nightly wage
Sweating and a frettin‰ from his head to his toe
(G) Playin‰ and (F) swayin‰ with the gu(C)mbo
(G) Prayin‰ and (F) buffetin‰ with the gu(C)mbo
 
A (F) piece of french bread with which to wipe my bowl
(C) Good for the body, good for the soul
It‰s a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex
(G) You should never know when you‰re gonna get it next
At (C) midnight in the Quarter or noon in Thibodaux
(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
 
Fade Out
