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

(band enters)
 F
        Savin' 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:
 FC7
        I'm goin' back some day, come what may, to Blue Bayou
 F
        Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on Blue Bayou
 F7
        All those fishin' boats with their sails afloat
 BbBbm
        If I could only 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
 GmC7F
        On Blue   Bay...ou
 (Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)  [repeat to fade]

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
