CAJUN BABY Recorded by: Hank Williams, Jr. Lyrics by Hank Williams, Sr. Music by Hank Williams, Jr. CHORUS [D] Way down yonder in the Bay-ou country In [A] dear old [D] Louisan' That's where lives my Ca-[*D/F#] jun Baby The [E] fairest one in the [A] land Her [D] teeth are white and pearly Hair black as coal I [G] wouldn't trade my Cajun Baby [D] For the world's gold Way down yonder in the Bay-ou country In [A] dear old [D] Louisan' [D] My hearts been sad and lonely Sinc the [G] day I left her [D] side But today I got [*D/F#] this letter Said she'd [E] be my Cajun [A] bride Gonna [D] go and wed my Cajun Baby And [G] live by the old [D] Bayou Eat a lots of shrimp and crawfish Ride a-[A] round in my old [D] piroque. CHORUS Before the sun goes down this eve-nin' I'll be on my way To see my Cajun Baby And there I'm gonna stay On a Saturday night we go dancin' And listen to the fiddle-o Lawd! I got me a Cajun Baby Just livin' and lovin' by the old Bay-ou. CHORUS *004232=D/F# note added
