Down Along The Bayou Country
Written and recorded by Ricky Nelson

C
It was down along the Bayou country
G7
Down around New Orleans

You took my hand you said your my man
C
We'll have a good life you and me


It was down along the Bayou country
G7
Down in the Cajun land

Momma said son you know before you're done
C
You're gonna wind up with a gun in your hand

F
Then I heard that train whistle moaning

It was rolling on down the line

I got thoughts to straighten out places to know about
G7 C
I'll be home in good time


Then I hopped a train down in Lockport
G7
I headed cross Hattiesburg

I think I knew then I wouldn't see you again
C
Goodbye was the last thing I heard

F
Then I met a man up in Greenville

He said he'd give me some real good advice

He said you gotta get smart I did here take this gun
G7 C
And kid never never look twice


Now living to me has meant heartache
G7
Life was always something to use

As I look back again I never could win
C
I guess I was put down here to lose


Now I'm alone and locked in Montgomery
G7
You see I robbed a bank and shot a man

Their gonna hang me tomorrow I wish I could borrow
C
My life to live over again
