Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Bayou Jubilee Lyrics



Nothing in this world such a pure delight
As a fais-do-do on a Saturday night
Work your tail off all week long
But forget about your troubles with a party and a song

Boy I love those old time tunes
They can tickle your senses like a Cajun moon
Creole food sure tastes fine
When you wash it on down with that homemade wine

Get out the fiddle rosin up the bow
There's gonna be some music and I hope it ain't slow
Grab your baby dance 'til three down at the Bayou Jubilee
Grab your baby dance 'til three down at the Bayou Jubilee

There's Pierre and his girl Laverne
Dancin' so hot you'd think their shoes were burning
Grandma's in the corner shakin' it too
She's got her own version of a Cajun boogaloo [repeat chorus]

  1. Randy Brackett

    Perfect example of why I love the Dirt Band so much

    They’re the perfect adept with a mix of Bluegrass, Country, Folk and Rocknroll. They definitely are not a one trick pony type of band.

  2. joseph lemko

    Tremendous performance. 🤗🤩😎😛🤠🎸🎻🎵🎶🥁🎸🎹🌞

  3. Gary Flater

    Best band of all time

  4. MrMusicguyma

    Fun band, but that was not Sally Goodin in the medley. It was another melody and chord progression, probably a John McCuen original, not bad tho.

  5. TobyMinceraft - GarageBand

    I saw this when they showed it on PBS last week.
    They were amazing.
