Wild Bill Jones (Traditional)

Simple to play. Here we go...


Intro: A | E | A | E | A

As I went out for to take a little walk
                 E         A
I came upon that Wild Bill Jones

He was walkin' and a-talkin' by my true lover's side
                 E         A
And I bid him to leave her alone

(Banjo solo: A | E | A | E | A)

He said, "My age is twenty-one,
      E           A     
Too old to be controlled."

I pulled my revolver from my side
                     E          A
And I destroyed that poor boy's soul

(Dobro solo: A | E | A | E | A)

He reeled and he staggered then he fell to the ground
                 E         A
And then he gave one dyin' moan

Well, he wrapped his arms around my little girl's neck
                       E       A
Said "Honey, won't you take me home."

(Guitar solo: Improv. and/or A | E | A | E | A)

So put them handcuffs on me boys
                    E           A
And lead me to that freight car gate

I have no friends or relations there
              E     A
No one for to go my bail

(Fiddle solo: A | E | A | E | A)

So pass around that ol' longneck bottle
            E         A
And we'll all go on a spree

Today saw the last of Wild Bill Jones
                       E       A
And tomorrow'll be the last of me
