written and performed by Billy Joe Shaver.

Verse 1:
 	 Billy B.,Billy B. was his name

 	 Billy B. Damned was his claim to fame

 	 Kinda heavy in the head and mean in the eye
 	 All the people stopped talkin'
              A            E 
 	 When Billy walked by

Verse 2:
 	 He kinda shuffled along,if you know what i mean

 	 Always lookin' for a lady

 	 Who was lookin' for a scene

 	 Snappin' his fingers to the radio
         B                      A          E
 	 Bippin' and boppin' wherever he'd go

 	 Billy B. Billy B. was his name

 	 Billy B. Damned was his claim to fame

 	 Billy B. Billy B. Damned
         B           A               E 
 	 Billy was a mighty peculiar man

Verse 3:
 	 He was the number seven of a seventh son

 	 Born in the valley

 	 Where the river don't run

 	 He had to walk ten miles just to get to school
              B                          A         E
 	 That didn't last long 'cause he wasn't no fool

Verse 4:
 	 Back in the big falls 'way down home

 	 Old Billy done his stompin'

 	 Till the cows come home

 	 Always gettin' into trouble 

 	 And messin' with the law
            B                              A              E 
 	 It didn't matter none 'cause the sheriff was his paw


Verse 5:
 	 Billy got married and he settled down 

 	 Got elected to mayor

 	 Of his home town

 	 Got his feet on the desk

 	 And a big cigar
          B                         A        E   
 	 Travelled 'round town in a Cadillac car
