Me and Billy the Kid
written by Joe Ely
Album: "Hillbilly Rock"
2/10/06
NOTE: There's a lick that gets played quite a bit.  I'm not positive exactly what it is,
      but the following chord sequence sounds about right:

                        Gsus2-Gadd6-G

         Gsus2 = 320233
         Gadd6 = 322033 (not the actual chord name, but what the hell)

      Play this lick throughout the INTRO (listen to the record, it's unmistakable),
      at the end of every G verse line, and in between verses.


INTRO: G

G
Me and Billy the Kid never got along
G
I didn't like the way he cocked his hat and he wore his gun all wrong
   C
We had the same girlfriend and he never forgot it
          G
She had a cute little Chihuahua 'til one day he up and shot it
   D
We rode the hard country down the New Mexico Line
   G
He had a silver pocket-watch that he never did wind
   D
He crippled a piano for playin' his favorite song
     G
Yeah me and Billy the Kid just never got along


Me and Billy the Kid never gota long
I didn't like the way he parted his hair and he wore his gun all wrong
He was bad to the bone all hopped up on speed
I woulda left him alone if it hadn't been for that senorita
He gave her silver and he paid her hotel bill
But it was mean that she loved and said she always will
I'd always go and see her when Billy was gone
And me and Billy the Kid just never got alone


Me and Billy the Kid never got along
I didn't like the way he tied his shoes and he wore his gun all wrong
One day I said Billy I've got this fool-proof scheme
We'll rob Wells Fargo it's just bustin' at the seams
I admit that I framed but I don't feel so bad
'Cause the way I was a-livin' was drivin' me mad
Billy reached for his gun but his gun was on wrong
Me and Billy the Kid just never got along


SOLO


Me and Billy the Kid never got along
But I liked the way he swayed in the wind when I played him his favorite song
Now my baby sings with me to "la cucaracha"
Winds her silver pocket-watch and pets her new Chihuahua
I moved into the hotel, got a room with a shower
We lay and listen to that watch tick hour after hour
Outside I hear the wind blowin'a way so strong
And me and Billy the Kid just never got along
