HAIL TO THE BAYOU

 

HAIL TO THE BAYOU

LORD I HEAR THOSE FIDDLES CALLING ME

THERE ON THE BAYOU

ITíS THE ONLY PLACE I WANT TO BE

 

I MISS THOSE SWEET, MAGNOLIA BLOSSOMS

AS THEY BEGIN TO BLOOM IN SPRING

AND I MISS THE WAY MY ROSIE HELD ME

ITíS A PART OF A LONESOME RAMBLERíS DREAM

 

Chorus

FOR THAT BIG CITY CALLED ME FAR AWAY

AND LED ME DOWN A ROAD THAT GOES TO NOWHERE

AND I FIND THIS CITY AINT MY KIND OF PLACE

SO IíM LEAVING, LEAVING HERE TODAY

 

GOING HOME ON THE BAYOU

LORD THATíS WHERE MY ROSIE WAITS FOR ME

PLEASE AIRPLANE DRIVER

HURRY UP AND GET US ON OUR WAY
