Hank Williams – Cajun Baby lyrics

Way down yonder in the bayou country in dear old Louisianne
That's where lives my Cajun baby the fairest one in the land
Her teeth're white and pearly hair black as coal
Wouldn't trade my Cajun baby for the world's gold
Way down yonder in the bayou country in dear old Louisianne

My heart's been sad and lonely since the day I left her side
But today I got her letter said she'd be my Cajun bride
Gonna go and wed my Cajun baby and I've by the old bayou
Eat a lots'a shrimp and craw fish ride around in my old pi-rogue
Way down yonder

Before the sun goes down this evening I'll be on my way
To see my Cajun baby and there I'm gonna stay
On a Saturday night we go dancin' and listen to the fiddle-o
Lord I got me a Cajun baby just a livin' and a lovin' by the old bayou
Way down yonder
