Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo

C

On the first part of the journey I was looking at all the life There were plants and birds and rocks and things There was sand and hills and rings The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz And the sky with no clouds The heat was hot and the ground was dry But the air was full of sound I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name cause there aint no one for to give you no pain La, la ... After two days in the desert sun My skin began to turn red After three days in the desert sun I was looking at a river bed And the story it told of a river that flowed Made me sad to think it was dead You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name cause there aint no one for to give you no pain La, la ... After nine days I let the horse run free cause the desert had turned to sea There were plants and birds and rocks and things There was sand and hills and rings The ocean is a desert with its life underground And a perfect disguise above Under the cities lies a heart made of ground But the humans will give no love You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name cause there aint no one for to give you no pain La, la ...

'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma cher amio

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o

C

Son of a gun, we'll 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, me oh my oh Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou. Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet 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. Settle down far from town, get me a pirogue And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou Swap my mon to buy Yvonne what she need-o Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bayou. Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet 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.

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town. Down a the market you can hear ladies cry out what on the heads they bear. Haki, rice, salt and fish are nice and the rum tastes fine any time of year. But I'm sad to say, I'm on my way, won't be back for many a day, my heart is down, my head is turning around, I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town. Sounds of laughter everywhere, and the dancing girls sway to and fro. I must declare my heart is there, though I have been from Maine to Mexico. But I'm sad to say, I'm on my way, won't be back for many a day, my heart is down, my head is turning around, I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town.

Well, you wake up in the morning You hear the ding dong ring

Early in the evenin just about supper time, Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind. Four kids on the corner trying to bring you up. Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp.

F C F G C C C C G G C G C F G C G C C C C G C C

You go marchin to the table

C..

You see the same old thing Ain't no food upon the table And no fork in the pan But you better not complain, boy You get in trouble with the man

F G

Down on the corner, out in the street, Willy and the poorboys are playin; Bring a nickel; tap your feet. Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile,

C F C F

Let the midnight special shine a light on me Let the midnight special shine a ever-lovin' light on me Yonder come miss Rosie Tell me how do you know I know her by her apron And the dress she wore Umbrella on her shoulder Piece of paper in her hand She come to see the captain She want to free her man Let the midnight special shine a light on me Let the midnight special shine a ever-lovin' light on me If you're ever in Houston Well you'd better do right You'd better not gamble And you better not fight Or the sheriff will grab you The boys will bring you down The next thing you know boy Well, you're prison bound Let the midnight special shine a light on me Let the midnight special shine a ever-lovin' light on me

Refrain x 3

Blinky, thumps the gut bass and solos for a while. Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo. Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo. Down on the corner, out in the street, Willy and the poorboys are playin; Bring a nickel; tap your feet. (chorus x 2)

C C G G C

You don't need a penny just to hang around, But if youve got a nickel, wont you lay your money down?

Over on the corner theres a happy noise. People come from all around to watch the magic boy.

Hey Rain, rain coming down on the cane, Hey Rain, rain coming down on the cane, On the roofs of the town. Rain in my hair, rain in my face Muddy old Innisfail's a muddy wet place, Hey rain, hey rain. Bloke from the west nearly died of fright 'cause the river rose thirty-five feet last night, Hey rain, hey rain. Johnson River crocodile living in me fridge, and a bloody great tree on the Jubilee Bridge, Hey rain, hey rain. Hey Rain, rain coming down on the cane, On the roofs of the town. Rain in my beer, rain in my grub, and they've just fitted anchors to the Garradunga Pub,

On the roofs of the town.
