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.
