Jim Reeves – Billy Bayou Lyrics

Back about eighteen hundred some
A Louisiana couple had a redheaded son
No name suited him the Jim Jack or Joe
They just called him Billy Bayou
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go your walking on quicksand walk slow
Billy Billy Bayou watch what you say a pretty girl will get you one of these days
Bill was big for his size
Red hair and freckles and big blue eyes
Thirteen years form the day he was born
He fought the battle of the Little Big Horn
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go your walking on quicksand walk slow
Billy Billy Bayou watch what you say a pretty girl will get you one of these days
One sad day Billy sed cried ho! ho!
I can whip the fathers of Geronmino
He got smart the chief got mad
This nearly ended our Louisiana lad
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go your walking on quicksand walk slow
Billy Billy Bayou watch what you say a pretty girl will get you one of these days
One day in eighteen-seventyeight
A pretty girl walked up to Bill’s front
He didn’t know whether to stand or run
He wound up married cose he did eather one
Billy Billy Bayou watch where you go your walking on quicksand walk slow
Billy Billy Bayou watch what you say a pretty girl will get you one of these days
Pretty girl will get you one of these days
