“Blue Bayou”
I feel so bad I’ve got a worried mind
I’m so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou
Saving nickels, saving dimes, working ’till the sun don’t shine
Looking forward to happier times on Blue Bayou
I’m going back some day come what may to Blue Bayou
Where you sleep all day and the catfish play on Blue Bayou
All those fishing boats with their sails afloat If I could only see
That familiar sunrise through sleepy eyes, how happy I’d be
Go to see my baby again
And to be with some of my friends
Maybe I’d be happy then on Blue Bayou
I’m going back some day, gonna stay on Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on Blue Bayou
Oh, that girl of mine by my side the silver moon and the evening tide
Oh, some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin’ inside
I’ll never be blue, my dreams come true on Blue Bayou

“Blue Bayou” is the title of a classic hit written by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson and originally sung by Orbison. It later became Linda Ronstadt’s signature song.
A plaintive ballad, “Blue Bayou” was originally recorded by Roy Orbison at the end of 1961, but released by Monument as the double A-side track on a Monument Records single in the UK, yet was issued at the ‘B’-side single in the US, peaking at #29; “Mean Woman Blues” was a US #5, released in August 1963, written by Claude Demetrius and originally recorded by Elvis Presley in 1957). In the UK both sides peaked at #3 as a double A-sided single on London Monument, HLU 9777. The song also appeared on Orbison’s 1963 full-length album In Dreams. Luis Chaluisan
