You see I take a little trip in my old field road
Down the Louisiana swamp to Beinja Bayo
The prettiest site I ever did see was the Cajun girls
On them awesome trees

Raw fish boilin' on an open fire
Cajun fiddled them an old guitar
People all a-comin' from near and far
To drink their tea from a old fruit jar

And I call my fightin' alligator
All the way don't you know
For my sweetheart of Beinja Bayou

Her brown eyes sparkled
And her hair was long
I asked her to dance to a Cajun song
My heart was a fire and I am runnin' wild
I never had seen such a pretty smile

So what's you name
Oh honey, I gotta know
My sweetheart of Beinja Bayou
'Cos daylights are comin'
And I've gotta go
Back up the river in my old field road

She is my sweetheart of Beinja Bayou
Got a hold on my mind as she won't let go
I think about her from dust till dawn
Her lips are sweeter than honey in a comb

And I'll fight an alligator
All the way don't you know
For my sweetheart of Beinja Bayou

She is my sweetheart of Beinja Bayou
Got a hold in my mind as she won't let go
I think about her from dust till dawn
Her lips are sweeter than honey in a comb

And I'll fight an alligator
All the way don't you know
For my sweetheart of Beinja Bayou

Boy, as I wave half water all the way don't you know
Well I'ma going back to Beinja Bayou
Come on
