Be Quiet As Willie Walks By as recorded by Charlie Waller and The Country Gentlemen
Album: unknown
Interpreted/Transcribed by GMWNS (12 Mar 2006) Gmwns at aol.com
 
Intro:  (G)   (Bm)   (C)   (G)   (C)   (D)   (G)   (D)

Did you (G) see the old (Bm) boys with their (C) uniforms (G) on
Marching down Main Street (D) today
Some helped the others as they went along
Their minds seemed so far a-(G)-way

And when they laid the (Bm) wreath at the (C) top of the (G) hill
I saw some of them (C) cry
As they (D) thought of their friends too long ago
And ages long since gone (G) by

Old Willie (Bm) Johnson (C) walked all (G) alone
As the rain came tumbling (D) down
And someone they laughed as Willie drew near
For he was the drunk of the (G) town

And one of the (Bm) men came (C) over and (G) said
You know, Willie's one heck of a (C) guy
If it (D) wasn't for him----I wouldn't be here---today
So be quiet when Willie walks (G) by

He sewed on his (Bm) medals a (C) long time (G) ago
With the help a bottle could (D) hold
But it's hard to fall out of the cracks in your soul
When the last of your pride has been (G) sold

But deep down in (Bm) side there's a (C) heart of pure (G) gold
And the spirit that money can't (C) buy
So re-(D)-member my friend bow to the truth
Be quiet when Willie walks (G) by
Yes, be (D) quiet when Willie walks (G) by (C) (D) (G)
