Blue Bayou
Roy Orbison, Joe Melson (1961)
uitv.: Roy Orbison (1963)

Feel so bad I've 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

I'm going back some day, come what may
To Blue Bayou
Where you sleep all day, and the catfish play
On Blue Bayou
All those fishing boats, with their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise, through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be

Go to see my baby again,
And to be with some of my friends
Maybe I'd be happy then
On Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day, gonna stay
On Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Oh, that girl of mine, by my side
The silver moon and the evening tide
Oh, some sweet day, gonna take away
This hurting inside

I'll never be blue, my dreams come true
On Blue Bayou
