Hank Williams – Jambalaya lyrics

1. [d]goodbye joe, me gotta go, me oh [a]my oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the [d]bayou
My yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh [a]my oh
Son of a gun, well have good fun on the [d]bayou

Chorus:
[d]jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a file [a]gumbo
Cause tonight I'm gonna see my machez a[d]mio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be [a]gay-oh
Son of a gun, well have big fun on the [d]bayou.

2. Instrumental verse (country fiddle solo)

3. [d]thibodeaux, fontainbleau, the place is [a]buzzin
Kinfolk come to see yvonne by the [d]dozen
Dress in style, go hog wild, me oh [a]my oh
Son of a gun, well have big fun on the [d]bayou.

Repeat chorus

4. Instrumental verse (country fiddle solo)

Final chorus:
[d]jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a fillet [a]gumbo
Cause tonight I'm gonna see my machez a[d]mio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be [a]gay-oh
Son of a gun, well have big fun on the b[d]ayou.
Son of a gun, well have big fun on the b[d]ayou.
Son of a gun, well have big fun on the b[d]ayou.
