Back about eighteen hundred and some
A Louisiana couple had a red headed son
No name soothe him Jim, Jack or Joe
They just called him Billy Bayou.

Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days.

--- Instrumental ---

Billy was a boy, kinda big for a size
Red hair and freckles and big blue eyes
Thirteen years from the day he was born
Bill fought the battle of the Little Big Horn.

Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days.

--- Instrumental ---

One sad day Billy cried, hoho
I can whip the feathers of Geronimo
He smarted off, the chief got mad
This nearly ended our Louisiana lad.

Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days.

--- Instrumental ---

One day in 1878 a pretty girl
Walked through Billy's front gate
He didn't know whether to stand there or run
He would up married cause he did neighter one.

Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go
You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days.

A pretty girl'll get you one of these days...
