Bayou Bum

Song Author Donny Young , Aubrey Mayhew og Arnie Adams Performer: Johnny Paycheck Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]Well I fish all day from my boat that´s the way I make my living
I got an old greasy dog and a riverboat for my [D7]home   
I´m as [G]common as a stream-boat on the Mississippi river
Yeah I´m a bayou bum and what little [D7]bit I got is my [G]own  


Yeah I´m a bayou bum and I wouldn´t work if I could
Yeah I´m a scavenger on the river and it treats me [D7]good   
[G]Dreaming and a wishing fighting and a fishing that´s all I´ve ever done
You can do as you please but as for me I´m [D7]gonna stay a bayou [G]bum  


There ain´t a thing on the Mississippi river I ain´t seen
Yeah I fought my way from Memphis to New [D7]Orleans
Yeah [G]I´ve had people say I´m as no good as they come
But the words don´t hurt the [D7]likes of a bayou [G]bum  


Well I´ve had many chances to marry but I´ve turned them down
Yeah I´ve left pretty little girls crying in many waterfront [D7]towns
And [G]if I die tonight you can say I´ve had my fun
Yeah loving and living the [D7]life of a bayou [G]bum  

Yeah I´m a bayou bum and I wouldn´t work if I could
Yeah I´m a scavenger on the river and it treats me [D7]good   
[G]Dreaming and a wishing fighting and a fishing that´s all I´ve ever done
You can do as you please but as for me I´m [D7]gonna stay a bayou [G]bum  

Well I fish all day from my boat that´s the way I make my living
I got an old greasy dog and a riverboat for my home
I´m as common as a stream-boat on the Mississippi river
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
Yeah I´m a scavenger on the river and it treats me good
Dreaming and a wishing fighting and a fishing that´s all I´ve ever done
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
Yeah I fought my way from Memphis to New Orleans
Yeah I´ve had people say I´m as no good as they come
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
Yeah I´ve left pretty little girls crying in many waterfront towns
And if I die tonight you can say I´ve had my fun
Yeah loving and living the life of a bayou bum

Yeah I´m a bayou bum and I wouldn´t work if I could
Yeah I´m a scavenger on the river and it treats me good
Dreaming and a wishing fighting and a fishing that´s all I´ve ever done
You can do as you please but as for me I´m gonna stay a bayou bum
