Song Meaning
Verse 1
I took a long, long trip to the city
I was determined to get somewhere
I spent all my hard earned money
I had saved to put me there
Verse 2
Big bayou where did you go
To the river that's running slow
And to the Gulf of Mexico
Big bayou carry me home
Verse 3
I took a cotton picking job in Memphis
And the people there treated me good
But my luck run bad in Nashville
I had to walked the streets of Hollywood
Verse 4
Big bayou where did you go
To the river that's running slow
Into the Gulf of Mexico
Big bayou carry me home
Verse 5
Gotta get away
Gotta find a way
Gotta get away home
Verse 6
Oh Lord I'm going home
Where the fish jump in the air
You know I don't need a lot of money
Cause I ain't going nowhere
Verse 7
Big bayou where did you go
To the river that's running slow
Into the Gulf of Mexico
Big bayou carry me home
Verse 8
Big bayou carry me home
To the river that's running slow
Into the Gulf of Mexico
Big bayou where did you go
Verse 9
I'm gonna catch a southbound
Train home one of these days
