Billy Billy Bayou
recorded by Jim Reeves
written by Roger Miller
Back about eighteen hundred and some
G7 C
A Louisiana couple had a red headed son

No name suited him Jim Jack or Joe
G7 C
They just called him Billy Bayou

Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go
G7 C
You're walking on quick sand and walk slow
Billy Billy Bayou watch what you say
G7 C
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

Billy was a boy kinda big for his size
G7 C
Red hair and freckles and big blue eyes

Thirteen years from the day he was born
G7 C
Bill fought the battles of the Little Big Horn

Repeat #2

One sad day Billy cried ho-ho
G7 C
I can whip the feathers of Geronimo

He smarted off the chief got mad
G7 C
This nearly ended our Louisiana lad

Repeat #2

One day in eighteen seventy eight
G7 C
A pretty girl walked through Bill's front gate

He didn't know whether to stand there and run
G7 C
He wound up married cause he did neither one

Repeat #2
