I feel so bad, I got a worried mind;
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou;
Saving nickels, saving dimes, 
Working till the sun don't shine,
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou.



(Refrain:)
I'm going back someday, come what may, to Blue Bayou,
Where the folks are fine, and the world is mine on Blue Bayou.
Where those fishing boats with their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes, how happy I'd be.


Gonna see my baby again;
Gonna be with some of my friends
Maybe I'll feel better again on Blue Bayou
Saving nickels, saving dimes, 
Working till the sun don't shine,
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou.

(Refrain)

(Instrumental Interlude - half of refrain)

Oh that girl of mine by my side,
The silver moon and the evening time;
Oh, some sweet day, gonna take away this hurtin' inside.
Well I'd never be blue, my dreams come true
On Blue Bayou.
