Subject: Lyric Correction: Jambalaya
In the vein of lyric corrections, in "Jambalaya" it is
Chorus:
"Jambalaya and a crawfish pie,filé gumbo,
'Cause tonight I'm gonna see my ma chèr amie-o.
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
. Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bay-ou.

Thibaudaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin'.
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen,
Dressed in style, go hog wild, me, oh my, oh! ..
. Son of a gun, we'll have big fun on the bay-ou!


"Filé Gumbo" is not a "fillet." (I took out some hyphens, also, to show that "ma chèr amie(-o)" is three separate words.
