- 7th fret On the bayou muddy waters warm And mosquitoes got a place to swarm And the gumbo's always hot on the bayou, Down in Cajun country. On the bayou you better take your fishing pole And if you're thirsty, I got some Dixie's icy cold. Try some Crawfish Etouffe, Oyster Po'boy, Down in Cajun country. {riff 1 - three times} On the bayou I met Alligator Henri. He was poaching, but that ain't the story he tried to tell me. Born and raised in New Orleans, he's a Creole Down in Cajun country. {riff 1 - three times} On the bayou's only place I feel at home And I'll never, never, never feel the need to roam. I'm a Coonass through and through I don't care none Down in Cajun Country. {riff 1} D |----------------|------------7--5-|----- A |----------3--5--|----------5------|-7--- E |-3--4-/-5-------|-5--6-/-7--------|----- Copyright EMI Music Publishing; reprinted with kind permission.
