Blue Bayou
Linda Ronstadt Lyrics


I feel so bad I got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind
On Blue Bayou

Saving nickles, saving dimes
Working til the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou

I'm going back someday
Come what may
To Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fun
And the world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boats
With their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be

Gonna see my baby again
Gonna be with some of my friends
Maybe I'll feel better again
On Blue Bayou

Saving nickles saving dimes
Working til the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou

I'm going back someday
Come what may
To Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fun
And the world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boats
With their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be

Oh that boy of mine
By my side
The silver moon
And the evening tide
Oh some sweet day
Gonna take away
This hurting inside
Well I'll never be blue
My dreams come true
On Blue Bayou

I was the video recording engineer for this concert at the Atlanta Civic Center in 1977. After the show, Linda and her band knocked on the door (!) of my little tape truck and asked if they could watch the tape, so they and I sat together and watched the show. Linda is so unassuming and such a beautiful person. I remember talking to Don Grolnick, the piano player, who played the show with a broken hand. It was a great show, and a great memory for me, but I never thought this recording would live on 40+ years later.

I loved reading this memory. So thankful to you for sharing it and living it!

Elizabeth Thomas

Thank you for capturing greatness!!!

@Bill Lance Just adding my voice to the chorus of thank-you's here for this phenomenal recording, and also for your insight into Ms. Ronstadt's personality and demeanor. It just enhances the pleasure of her music knowing how decent and modest a person she was. Speaks so highly of her and her band's work ethic that having just completed a full concert, they were eager to see and critique what they had just done. Your work ethic was pretty amazing, too. The quality of this audio and video is so superior, that it almost makes me forget how bad I feel about never hearing and seeing and her live.
All the best to you, Bill, and thank you for the part you played in preserving this gorgeous performance by this supremely talented woman. So glad she is still among us and not hiding herself away.

awesome memories...!

Molly English

What an endearing memory to have Bill. I can see why this version has endured for forty-plus years. Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

Linda Ronstadt is in a class all her own.

Almost. She shares it with Roy Orbison.

When an artist could sell a song without having to get half naked. Real voice with no effects or pyro effects .
