Bayou Bum Recorded by Johnny Paycheck Written by Donny Young, Aubrey Mayhew, Arnie Adams
G Well I fish all day from my boat that’s the way I make my living D7 I got an old greasy dog and a riverboat for my home G I’m as common as a stream-boat on the Mississippi river D7 G Yeah I’m a bayou bum and what little bit I got is my own
Yeah I’m a bayou bum and I wouldn’t work if I could D7 Yeah I’m a scavenger on the river and it treats me good G Dreaming and a wishing fighting and a fishing that’s all I’ve ever done D7 G You can do as you please but as for me I’m gonna stay a bayou bum
There ain’t a thing on the Mississippi river I ain’t seen D7 Yeah I fought my way from Memphis to New Orleans G Yeah I’ve had people say I’m as no good as they come D7 G But the words don’t hurt the likes of a bayou bum
Well I’ve had many chances to marry but I’ve turned them down D7 Yeah I’ve left pretty little girls crying in many waterfront towns G And if I die tonight you can say I’ve had my fun D7 G Yeah loving and living the life of a bayou bum
