Q (Frank Staplin) Lyr Req: Jole Blon / Jolie Blonde / Jolie Blon (65* d) RE: Lyr Req: Jole Blon / Jolie Blonde / Jolie Blon 06 Sep 14

Joe, the lyrics posted at the start of this thread by George Seto are the ones given in Musiciens cadiens et créoles, by Barry Jean Ancelet.

They are the lyrics of the first recording of "Jolie blonde" by Amédé, Cléopha and Ophé Breaux.

The translation is the one given by Ancelet.

Note the corrected spellings of the Breaux names. They are seldom given correctly.

Line 3- t'en, not T'en

The book is in both French and English (The Makers of Cajun Music). The University of Texas Press, 1984.
