Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Jole Blon / Jolie Blonde / Jolie Blon
I'm 52 and I remember a version when I was a kid that I loved. It went "Jolie Blon.. Pretty girl. Like a sayer from Louisiana. Where the rice and the gravy and the wine makes you crazy, you'll dance all night long with Jolie Blon. Ahhhhh Yiii! I loved that version but don't know where on earth to find it or who sang it. I do know that when they had a Cajun band in Canton TX, they would play that version and I always found some pretty girl to dance with. I wish there was someone out there that could solve this mystery for me. I'm pretty good at finding old songs I remembered but this one version of Jolie Blon has been quite elusive.
