OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I'm going back someday come what may to Blue Bayou
You do a left allemande, then you dosado
Now the men star left, one time you go
You turn your partner by the right, you go left allemande
Come back one, swing and promenade that land
Where I'll never be blue, my dreams will come true
On Blue Bayou


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the head ladies chain to the right and go
1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade halfway you know
Down the middle star thru, pass thru
Dosado make your wave, swing thru
Now the men run right, bend the line, slide thru
Swing that corner lady, promenade you do
To the familiar sunrise, through sleepy eyes
Oh how happy I'll be

Blue Bayou
 
 

I feel so bad I got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind
On Blue Bayou

Saving nickels, saving dimes
Working 'til the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day come what may
to Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine
And world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boats
With their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be

Going to see my baby again
Going to be with some of my friends
Maybe I'll feel better again
On Blue Bayou

Saving nickels, saving dimes
Working 'til the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day come what may
to Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine
And world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boats
With their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be

Oh, that boy of mine
By my side
The silver moon and the evening tide
Oh, some sweet day
Going to take away
This hurting inside
Well, I'll never be blue
My dreams come true
On Blue Bayou.

Lyrics by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson.
Recorded by Linda Ronstadt.
