Billy Bayou Lyrics

Artist: Del Reeves
Album: Sings Jim Reeves

Back about eighteen hundred and some
A Louisiana couple had a red headed son
No name soothed him Jim Jack or Joe
So they just called him Billy Bayou

Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go
You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
Billy Billy Bayou watch what you say
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
[ guitar ]
Billy was a boy kinda big for a size
Red hair and freckles and big blue eyes
Thirteen years from the day he was born
Billy fought the battle of the Little Big Horn

Billy Billy Bayou...
[ guitar ]
One sad day Billy cried hoho
I can whip the feathers of Geronimo
He smarted off and the chief got mad
This nearly ended our Louisiana lad

Billy Billy Bayou...
[ guitar ]
One day in 1878
A pretty girl walked through Billy's front gate
He didn't know whether to stand there and run
He would up married cause he did neighter one

Billy Billy Bayou...
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
