Intro: G Am7/G G Am7/G G Am7/G G

G                             Am7/G          G
There's guns across the river about to pound you,
G                      Am7/G                  G
There's lawmen on your trail like to surround you,
C                              G
Bounty hunters are dancing all around you,
D                                   G
Billy, they don't like you to be so free.

G                   Am7/G   G
Living out all night on the veranda,
G              Am7/G               G
Walking in the streets down by the hacienda,
C                              G
Up to Boot Hill they'd like to send you,
D                                  G
Billy, don't you turn your back on me.

G                        Am7/G G
Playing around with some sweet senorita,
G                    Am7/G     G
Into her dark chamber she will greet you,
C                                    G
In the shadows of the mesas she will lead you,
D                           G
Billy, and you're going all alone.

G                          Am7/G     G
They say that Pat Garrett's got your number,
G                     Am7/G         G
So sleep with one eye open when you slumber,
C                                G
Every little sound just might be thunder,
D                              G
Thunder from the barrel of his gun.

Break: G Am7/G G Am7/G G Am7/G G D Am7/G 

G                      Am7/G             G
There's always another stranger sneaking glances,
G                  Am7/G                G
Some trigger-happy fool willing to take chances,
C                                      G
Some old w***e from San Pedro will make advances,
D                                G
Advances on your spirit and your soul.

G                  Am7/G        G
So hang on to your woman if you got one,
G           Am7/G            G
Remember in El Paso once you shot one,
C                                    G
Yeah and up in Santa Fe one time you bought one,
D                                 G
Billy, you've been running for so long.

G                 Am7/G           G
Gypsy queens will play your grand finale,
G                Am7/G    G
Way down in some Tularosa alley,
C                     G
Maybe in La Rio Pecos valley,
D                              G
Billy, you're so far away from home,
D                              G
Billy, you're so far away from home.
