Long Gone Lonesome Blues

Hank Williams

Long Gone Lonesome Blues - Hank Williams -

I went down to the river to watch the fish swim by
But I got to the river so lonesome I wanted to die..., oh lord!
And then I jumped in the river, but the doggone river was dry

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues

I had me a woman who couldn’t be true
She made me for my money and she made me blue
A man needs a woman that he can lean on,
but my leanin’ post is done left and gone

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues

I’m gonna find me a river, one thats cold as ice
And when I find me that river, lord I’m gonna pay the price..., oh lord!
I’m goin’ down in it three times, but lord I’m only comin’ up twice

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues

She told me on Sunday she was checkin’ me out
Long about Monday she was nowhere about
And here it is Tuesday, ain’t had no news
I got them gone but not forgotten blues

She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blues

Jambalaya

Bird on a Wire - Leonard Cohen

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, gonna have big fun on the bayou 

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma chers amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou

Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin’ 
kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen 
Dress in style and go hog wild, and be gay-o 
Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou 

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma chers amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou

Later on, swap my mon, get me a pirogue 
And I’ll catch all the fish on the bayou 
Swap my mon, to buy Yvonne what she need-oh 
Son of a gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and filé gumbo
‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma chers amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou
