Blue Bayou Lyrics By Roy Orbison

    i feel so bad i’ve got a worried mind
    i’m so lonesome all the time
    since i left my baby behind on blue bayou

    saving nickels saving dimes
    working ’till the sun don’t shine
    looking forward to happier times
    on blue bayou
    i’m going back some day
    come what may to blue bayou
    where you sleep all day
    and the catfish play on blue bayou

    all those fishing boats
    with their sails afloat
    if i could only see
    that familiar sunrise
    through sleepy eyes
    how happy i’d be

    go to see my baby again
    and to be with some of my friends
    maybe i’d be happy then on blue bayou

    i’m going back some day
    gonna stay on blue bayou
    where the folks are fine
    and the world is mine
    on blue bayou
    oh that girl of mine by my side
    the silver moon and the evening tide
    oh some sweet day gonna take away
    this hurtin’ inside
    i’ll never be blue
    my dreams come true on blue bayou
