Verse:
I feel so bad I've got a wor - ried mind,  I'm so lone - some all the time,
Since I left my ba - by be - hind on Blue Bay - ou.
Sav - ing nick - els,  Sav - ing dimes,  Work - ing til' the sun don't shine.
Look - ing for - ward to hap - pi - er times on Blue Bay - ou.
 
Chorus:
I'm go - ing back some day,  Come what may to Blue Bay - ou,
Where you sleep all day and the cat - fish play on Blue Bay - ou.
All those fish - ing boats, with their sails a - float.  If I could on - ly see,
That fa - mil - iar sun-rise through sleep - y eyes,  How hap-py l'd be.
 
Ending:
I'll nev - er be blue,  My dreams come true on Blue Bay - ou,
