(gib gilbeau)

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

Big bayou where did you go
To the river that’s running slow
And to the gulf of mexico
Big bayou carry me home

I took a cotton picking job in memphis
And the people there treated me good
But my luck run bad in nashville
I had to walked the streets of hollywood

Big bayou where did you go
To the river that’s running slow
Into the gulf of mexico
Big bayou carry me home

Oh lord I’m going home
Where the fish jump in the air
You know I don’t need a lot of money
Cause I ain’t going nowhere

Big bayou where did you go
To the river that’s running slow
Into the gulf of mexico
Big bayou carry me home

Big bayou carry me home
To the river that’s running slow
Into the gulf of mexico
Big bayou where did you go

I’m gonna catch a southbound
Train home one of these days
