Wild Bill Jones
Chord-chart by Lynn Lewis
|G / / / |/ / / /
As I went out for to take a little walk,
|G / D / |G / /
And I walked u-pon that Wild Bill Jones,
/ |G / / / |/ / /
He was walkin’ - and talkin’ by my true lover’s side,
/ |G / D / |G / / /
I bid him for to leave her a-lone.
He says my age it is just twenty-one,
Too old for to be controlled,
I drew my revolver from my side,
I destroyed that poor boy’s soul.
Well he kicked and he staggered boys he fell to the ground,
And he give one dying groan,
I throwed my arms around my true lover’s neck,
Saying, "Honey, won't you carry me home".
So put them handcuffs on me boys,
And lead me to that freight car gate,
I have no friends or relations there,
No one for to go my bail.
Well it’s pass around your long neck bottle,
And we’ll all get on a spree,
For today was the last of old Wild Bill Jones,
And tomorrow’ll be the last of me.
