Johnny Horton - Shadows On The Old Bayou Lyrics




Strolling in the evening when the moon's hanging low
Just walking talking, baby, 'cause I miss you so
With twilight kisses, this evening too
I miss you, baby, in the shadows of the old bayou

My thoughts keep a-haunting the memories of you
Can't eat, sleep, don't know what I'm to do
My heart keeps a-calling, calling for you
I need you, baby, in the shadows of the old bayou

Now when shadows fall on the bayou
And whippoorwills call through the night
The perfume of the sweet magnolia
When I'm holding you, oh so tight

I'm just a-dreaming and a-scheming, just a-planning, my dear
Just thinking, wishing darling, you were here
For my heart it misses, it misses sweet you
I am so lonesome in the shadows of the old bayou

Now when shadows fall on the bayou
And whippoorwills call through the night
The perfume of the sweet magnolia
When I'm holding you, oh so tight

I'm just a-dreaming and a-scheming, just a-planning, my dear
Just thinking, wishing darling, you were here
For my heart it misses, it misses sweet you
I am so lonesome in the shadows of the old bayou
