Conway Twitty — Jambalaya lyrics

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 good fun on the bayou.

Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a file gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my machez amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

--- Instrumental ---

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

Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a file gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my machez amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

--- Instrumental ---

Jambalaya, a-crawfish pie and-a fillet gumbo
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my machez amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be [a]gay-oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou...
