         C                       G7
Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh
                                       C
Me gotta go, pole the pirogue down the bayou
                                   G7
My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh.
                                        C
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

Chorus:
     C                                  G7
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
                                         C
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio
                                   G7
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
                                        C
Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou

Solo: C G7 C G7 C

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin'
                                  C
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
                                       G7
Dress in style and go hog wild, me oh my oh
                                        C
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou
