Flying Burrito Brothers – Big Bayou Lyrics

Guilbeau

I took a long trip to the cities
I was determined to get somewhere
I spent all my hard-earned money
I had saved to put me there

Big Bayou, where do you go ?
To the river running slow
And to the Gulf of mexico
Big Bayou, carry me home

I took a picking job in Memphis
And the people there treated me good
But my luck ran bad in Nashville
I walked the streets of Hollywood

Big Bayou, where do you go ?
To the river running slow
And to the Gulf of mexico
Big Bayou, carry me home

…..
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Oh Lord, I’m going home
Where the fish jump in the air
You know I won’t need a lot of money
‘Cause I ain’t going nowhere

Big Bayou, where do you go ?
To the river just running slow
And to the Gulf of mexico
Big Bayou, carry me home, oh yeah

Big Bayou, where do you go ?
To the river just running slow
And to the Gulf of mexico
Big Bayou, carry me home

Big Bayou, where do you go ?
To the river just running slow
And to the Gulf of mexico
Big Bayou, where do you go ?

And I’m ….
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, go home
