Jambalaya ~ A Two Chord Song


Jambalaya
G                                                        D7
Goodbye Joe me gotta go me oh my oh
                                                                       G
Me  gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
                                                                  D7
My Yvonne the sweetest one me oh my oh
                                                                   G
Son of a gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou


G                                                                 D7
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filet gumbo
                                                                         G
Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
                                                     D7
Pick guitar fill fruit jar and be gay-o
                                                                   G
Son of a gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou


G                                                             D7
Thibodaux Fontaineaux the place is buzzing
                                                                G
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
                                                                  D7
Dress in style and go hog wild me oh my oh
                                                                   G
Son of a gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou


 
G                                                              D7
Settle down far from town get me a pirogue
                                                      G
And I’ll catch all the fish in the bayou
                                                                        D7
Swap my Mom to buy Yvonne what she need-oh
                                                                   G
Son of a gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou 




Repeat verse two
Then use the last line as a tag
Remember to start  in D7 and end in G

Pronounce:
Pirogue  - peer row
Thibodaux  -  thee bo doe
Fontaineaux – fountain  o

Have fun with this.
If you are a beginner, just practice, practice, practice.
Think about how much fun it will be 
to play at your next family party.

I would love to have you follow this musical blog.
Please leave a sweet note.

  1. This is a cool idea for a blog. I'm proud of you, because I think this will help beginner guitar players and folks that just like to sing, but can't remember the lyrics to these songs. Great job! Your hubby, Steve

  4. Connie, I am going to show this to my hubby. When we met (about 7 yrs. ago), he was wanting to take beginner guitar lessons. He met me....and the rest is HISTORY! I think he may enjoy this, I will let you know! And I hope you make some of those potting sticks very soon! Thank you so much for the compliment on something so easy to make...you will have a lot of FUN with them! From one sweetie to another....Roxie

    1. Roxie, Thanks so much for following my little guitar playing blog. I hope that this does stir-up the interest that your husband had to learn guitar. It is so much fun and it's the instrument that is portable enough to play on the front porch and carry on camping trips. I have only been playing for about three years and I wish that I had started earlier. I taught myself and now I play with two little groups and we gave so much fun. Thank you for visiting, for following and for your wonderful words of encouragement. Connie :)
