Billy Billy Bayou

Song Author Roger Miller Performer: Jim Reeves Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Back about eighteen hundred and some
A Louisiana couple had a [G7]red headed [C]son  

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

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


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

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

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


One sad day Billy cried ho-ho
I can whip the feathers of [G7]Geroni[C]mo  

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

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


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

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

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


Back about eighteen hundred and some
A Louisiana couple had a red headed son

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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