Billy Bayou  Roger Miller

(if you know who wrote this, let me know)
11/24/05
INTRO: D A D
[D]Back about 18-hundred and some
A Lousiana couple had a [A]redheaded [D]son
No name suited him, Jim Jack or Joe
So they just called him [A]Billy Bay[D]ou
CHORUS:
[G]Billy Billy Bayou [D]watch where you go
You're [A]walkin' on quicksand[D], walk slow
[G]Billy Billy Bayou w[D]atch what you say
A [A]pretty girl'll get you [D]one of these days
Billy was a boy kinda big for his size
Red hair, freckles, and big blue eyes
Thirteen years from the day he was born
Billy fought the battle of Little Bighorn
CHORUS
SOLO: D A D
(KEY CHANGE)
SOLO (cont'd): D# A# D#
[D#]One sad day Billy cried ho-ho
I can whip the feathers of a [A#]Geroni[D#]mo
He smarted off, the chief got mad
That likely ended our [A#]Lousiana [D#]lad
CHORUS:
[G#]Billy Billy Bayou [D#]watch where you go
You're [A#]walkin' on quicksand[D#], walk slow
[G#]Billy Billy Bayou [D#]watch what you say
A [A#]pretty girl'll get you [D#]one of these days
One day in 1878
A pretty girl walked through Bill's front gate
He didn't know whether to stand there or run
Wound up married 'cause he did neither one
CHORUS
OUTRO: D# A# D#
