Intro

I (C) donít smoke I donít shoot smack
But I got a spicy monkey riding on my back
Donít 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 grandmaís in her kitchen by the sea
She warned me when where she told me "son the first oneís 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
Itís a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex
(G) You should never know when youíre 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

Iím not (C) talking quesadillas or a dozen Krispy Kremes
Or a pile of caviar thatís a rich manís 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
Itís a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex
(G) You should never know when youíre gonna get it next 

(C) Maybe itís that sausage or those pretty pink shrimp
Or that popcorn rice that makes me blow up like a blimp
Maybe itís 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 cookiní on the stage
Singing and a-picking for his nightly wage
Sweating and a frettiní from his head to his toe
(G) Playiní and (F) swayiní with the gu(C)mbo
(G) Prayiní and (F) buffetiní 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
Itís a (F) little like religion and a lot like sex
(G) You should never know when youíre 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
