Blue Bayou chords
Roy Orbison *

I feel so bad Ive got a worried mind,
Im so lonesome all the time;
since I left my baby behind on blue bayou

F                             C7
Saving nickels, saving dimes, working till the sun dont shine
Looking forward to happier times, on blue bayou

         F                                C7
Im going back some day, come what may, to blue bayou
Where you sleep all day, and the catfish play, on blue bayou
          F7                                         Bb           Bbm
All those fishing boats, with their sails afloat, if I could only see
     F                         C7               F
That familiar sunrise, through sleepy eyes, how happy Id be

Go to see my baby again,
and to be with some of my friends
Maybe Id be happy then, on blue bayou

         F                             C7
Im going back some day, gonna stay, on blue bayou
Where the folks are fine, and the world is mine, on blue bayou
         F7                            Bb                          Bbm
Oh, that girl of mine, by my side, the silver moon and the evening tide
    F                     C7              F
Oh, some sweet day, gonna take away, this hurting inside

     C7                                    Gm   C7  F
Ill never be blue, my dreams come true, on blue bayou
