Cue Sheet

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads pass thru, split the ring, go around just uno
In the middle and circle 4 along the lagoon-oh
Frontier whirl, corner swing, me oh my oh
Join your hands, circle left along the bayou
4 ladies chain straight across that big ol ring-o
Chain the ladies back and hear me sing-oh
Your corner dosado, see saw your lady, there's time
Allemande left that corner, weave the ring-o
Jambalaya, crawfish pie, file gumbo
Dosado ma cherie me-oh
Promenade big guitar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, let's have some fun along the bayou


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Join your hands, circle left along the bayou
Go all the way around that ring-o
Allemande left your corner lady, dosado your part
Well, allemande left your corner, weave around that big old set
Jambalaya, crawfish pie, file gumbo
Dosado ma cherie me-oh
Promenade big guitar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, let's have some fun along the bayou

Jambalaya (On the Bayou)
 
 

Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh
Me gotta go, pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher ami-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Thibodeaux, Fontainebleau, the place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style and go hog wild, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher ami-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Settle down far from town, get me a pirogue
And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou
Swap my mon' to buy Yvonne what she need-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher ami-o
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou

Lyrics by Hank Williams.
