Lyrics

Up the river, I cannot stay long,
And the Bayou Sara she burned down,
She burned down to the water line,
And the Bayou Sara she burned down.
Bayou Sara she burned down,
The Bayou Sara she burned down,
She burned down to the water line,
And the Bayou Sara she burned down.

Whistle went “Whee” and the boiler went “Whomp!”
And the Bayou Sara, she burned down,
Deck blew off and I had to jump,
And the Bayou Sara she burned down.
Bayou Sara she burned down,
The Bayou Sara she burned down,
Deck blew off and I had to jump,
And the Bayou Sara she burned down.
