Intro

I (C) don’t smoke I don’t shoot smack

But I got a spicy monkey riding on my back

Don’t eat beignets too much sugar and dough

But (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

Yes (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

It started in my grandma’s in her kitchen by the sea

She warned me when where she told me "son the first one’s free"

It hit me like a rock or some Taekwondo

Cause (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

Oh yeah (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

A (F) piece of french bread with which to wipe my bowl

(C) Good for the body, good for the soul

It’s a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex

(G) You should never know when you’re gonna get it next

At (C) midnight in the Quarter or noon in Thibodaux

(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

Yes, (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

I’m not (C) talking quesadillas or a dozen Krispy Kremes

Or a pile of caviar that’s a rich man’s dream

No banana split or filet of pompano

No, (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

Yeah, (G) I will play for gu(C)mbo

Solo

A (F) piece of french bread with which to wipe my bowl

(C) Good for the body, good for the soul

It’s a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex

(G) You should never know when you’re gonna get it next

(C) Maybe it’s that sausage or those pretty pink shrimp

Or that popcorn rice that makes me blow up like a blimp

Maybe it’s that voodoo from Marie Laveau

But (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

Hey (G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

Now the (C) sauce boss makes his cookin’ on the stage

Singing and a-picking for his nightly wage

Sweating and a frettin’ from his head to his toe

(G) Playin’ and (F) swayin’ with the gu(C)mbo

(G) Prayin’ and (F) buffetin’ with the gu(C)mbo

A (F) piece of french bread with which to wipe my bowl

(C) Good for the body, good for the soul

It’s a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex

(G) You should never know when you’re gonna get it next

At (C) midnight in the Quarter or noon in Thibodaux

(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo

(G) I will (F) play for gu(C)mbo
