    Here are the words in English that Hank Williams wrote followed by the translation into Cajun French.

    Good-bye 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, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

    (Chorus)

    Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and file' 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

    Thibodeaux, Fontainenot, 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

    (Chorus)

    Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and file' 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

    (Chorus)

    Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and file' 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

    A CAJUN FRENCH VERSION:

    "GOODBY JOE" J'AI POUR ALLEZ, MI-O-MA-Y-O

    J'AI POUR ALLEZ MOI TOUT SEUL

    SUR LE BAYOU

    MA YVONNE, LA PLUS JOLIE

    SUR LE BAYOU

    TONNERRE M'ECRASE

    UN VA AVOIR UN BON TEMP

    SUR LE BAYOU

    ----refrain----------

    JAMBALAYA, DES TARTES D'ECREUVISSE, FILE GOMBO

    PAR A SOIR MOI J'VA ALLEZ VOIR

    MA CHERE AMI-O

    JOUER L'GUITAR, BOIRE DE LA JOGUE(cruche)

    ET FAIR DE LA MUSIQUE

    TOMNNERRE M'ECRASE

    UN VA AVOIR UN BON TEMP

    DE SUR LE BAYOU

    THIBODEAUX, FONTENOT, LA PLACE APRE SONNER

    CA VIEN "EN TAS" POUR VOIR YVONNE

    PAR LES DOUZAINES

    FAIR BIEN L'AMOUR, ET FAIR LE FOU, FAIR LA MUSIQUE

    TONNERRE M'ECRASE

    UN VA AVOIR UN BON TEMP
