Jambalaya

Lyrics: Hank Williams
Music: Hank Williams

Apparently played by Jerry Gracia with Old And In The Way. The source is an article in Melody Maker in April 1973 by Todd Tolces reviewing a concert probably on 13 March 1973 (thanks to Joe Jupille for pointing this out). It does not otherwise appear in setlists or tapes.

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

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

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

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