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
