    Lyrics

    Back about eighteen hundred and some
    A Louisiana couple had a red headed son
    No name soothed him Jim, Jack or Joe
    So they just called him Billy Bayou

    Billy Billy Bayou, watch where you go
    You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
    Billy Billy Bayou, watch what you say
    A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

    Billy was a boy kinda big for a size
    Red hair and freckles and big blue eyes
    Thirteen years from the day he was born
    Billy fought the battle of the little Big Horn

    Billy Billy Bayou, watch where you go
    You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
    Billy Billy Bayou, watch what you say
    A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

    One sad day Billy cried hoho
    I can whip the feathers of Geronimo
    He smarted off and the chief got mad
    This nearly ended our Louisiana lad

    Billy Billy Bayou, watch where you go
    You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
    Billy Billy Bayou, watch what you say
    A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

    One day in 1878
    A pretty girl walked through Billy's front gate
    He didn't know whether to stand there and run
    He would end up married cause he did neither one

    Billy Billy Bayou, watch where you go
    You're walkin' on quick sand and walk slow
    Billy Billy Bayou, watch what you say
    A pretty girl'll get you one of these days

    A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
    A pretty girl'll get you one of these days
