    Billy 4

    [Verse 1]
    There's guns across the river about to pound you
    There's a lawman on your trail like to surround you
    Bounty hunters are dancing all around you
    Billy, they don't like you to be so free

    [Verse 2]
    Camping out all night on the veranda
    Walking in the streets down by the hacienda
    Up to Boot Hill the like to send you
    Billy, don't you turn your back on me

    [Verse 3]
    There's mills inside the minds of crazy faces
    Bullet holes and rifles in their cases
    There is always one more notch in four more aces
    Billy, and you're playing all alone

    [Verse 4]
    Playing around with some sweet signorita
    Into her dark chamber she will greet you
    In the shadows of the maizes she will lead you
    Billy, and you're going all alone

    [Verse 5]
    They say that Pat Garrett's got your number
    So sleep with one eye open, when you wander
    Every little sound just might be thunder
    Thunder from the barrel of his gun

    [Verse 6]
    There's always another stranger sneaking glances
    Some trigger-happy fool willing to take chances
    Some old whore from San Pedro'll make advances
    Advances on your spirit and your soul

    [Verse 7]
    The businessmen from Taos want you to go down
    So they've hired mister Garrett, he'll force you to slow down
    Billy, don't let it make you feel so low down
    To be hunted by the man who was your friend

    [Verse 8]
    So hang on to your woman, if you got one
    Remember in El Paso once you shot one
    I'll be in Santa Fe about one
    Billy, you've been running for so long

    [Verse 9]
    Gypsy queens will play your grand finale
    Way down in some Tularosa alley
    Maybe in La Rio Pecas valley
    Billy, you're so far away from home
    Billy, you're so far away from home
