Yes it do. Only around here "bayou" doesn't have a really distinctive meaning. In Louisiana it seems to pretty much mean a swamp with a creek running through it. We have one or two of them, but we have several bayous that would be called rivers in most places. No swampiness, just running water. The one my friend live on, Bayou Texar (pronounced "tayhar" - Spanish style), is really a river. But it's much more mellow than the Mississippi.
