Bridge 2:

	I'm goin' back some day, gonna stay on Blue Bayou
	Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
	Ah, that girl of mine by my side
	The silver moon and the evening tide
	Ah, some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin' inside

	On Blue   Bay...ou

	(Bo-bo-bo dim-da-dee-ay)  [repeat to fade]
