Back about eighteen hundred and some a Louisiana couple had a red headed son
No name soothed him Jim Jack or Joe so 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
[ ac.guitar ]
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 Billy fought the battle of the Little Big Horn
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go...
[ ac.guitar ]
One said day Billy cried hoho I can whip the feathers of Geronimo
He smarted off the chief got mad that like to have ended our Louisiana lad
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go...
[ ac.guitar ]
The one day in 1878 a pretty girl walked through Billy's front gate
He didn't know whether to stand there and run
He would up married cause he did neighter one
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go...
