Jeff Healey Band, The - Jambalaya Lyrics




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 good fun on the bayou

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

Thibodeaux, Fontainbleau, the place is buzzin'
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dress in style, go hog wild, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou.

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

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

Jeff Healey Band, The Jambalaya Comments
  1. Mark Ridge

    Jeff Healy sang lead vocals on all tracks except "Jambalaya" which had Alec Fraser (Bass) sing lead. This album wasn't a quick release to capitalize on his death. It was planned and recorded by Jeff Healy months prior to his death.

  2. Ramaz Khatiashvili

    This is not Jeff's voice. Has anyone got any idea of who it is?

  3. Steve Woan

    Great cover!!

    anthony owsley

    Great cover? Man, That SUCKED! Hank sr. Would Beat the piss out of whoever that is for destroying his song like that.

  4. pepe lepew

    hope one day all of you get to come to Louisiana and eat some chicken and sausage jambalaya ....... great post

  5. Debra Berryere

    the 2 or 3 songs i've listened to so far from this album have departed greatly from the rest of his albums....they feature the other instruments more & less of Jeff's singing....either he was really unwell or they pieced this together from music played before he died and others singing over the dubs after died then released it...

  6. TheRunner75

    This is really one of the best covers ever recorded of this song. I love it. Please check, Fat Domino, The Carpenters, John Fogerty (Blue Ridge Rangers) and The Shocking Blue who all did good covers of the 1952 Hank Williams tune ;-)
