Blue Bayou ^ snare
Verse 2:
 (Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)

(band enters)
        S[F]avin' nickels, savin' dimes
        [C7/G]     Workin' 'til the sun don't shine
F (N.C.)
Lookin' forward to happier times on Blue Bayou
Bridge 1:
        I'm goin' b[F]ack some day, come what may, to B[C7]lue Bayou
        Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on B[F]lue Bayou
        All those f[F7]ishin' boats with their sails afloat
        If [Bb]I could only [Bbm]see
F C7 F (N.C.)
That familiar sunrise thru sleepy eyes how happy I'd be
Verse 3:
 (Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)

Oh, to see my baby again
And to be with some of my friends
Maybe I'd be happy then on Blue Bayou
Bridge 2:
I'm goin' back some day, gonna stay on Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
Ah, that girl of mine by my side
The silver moon and the evening tide
Ah, some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin' inside
Coda:
C7 (N.C.)
I'll never be blue, my dreams come true
        On B[Gm]lue   B[C7]ay...[F]ou
 (Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)  [repeat to fade]

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
