Jambalaya

C           G

Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh

G           C

Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou

C           G

My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh

G           C

Son of a gun, we’ll have good fun on the bayou


Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a file gumbo

‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh

Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.


Thibodeaux, Fontainbleau, the place is buzzin’

Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen

Dress in style, go hog wild, me oh my oh

Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.


Chorus


Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a fillet gumbo

‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh

Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.
