Pat Green - Me And Billy The Kid Lyrics




Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we never got along

Didn't like the way he cocked his hat, and he wore his gun all wrong.
We had the same girlfriend, and he never forgot it,
She had a cut little Chihuahua, that one day he over shot it.
He rode the hard country, down the New Mexico line,
He had a silver pocked watch, that he never did wind
He crippled a guitar player for playing his favorite song
Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we ain't ever got along.

Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we never got along,
Didn't like the way he buckled his belt, and he wore his gun all wrong
He was bad to the bone, all hopped up on speed,
I would have left him alone, if it weren't for that senorita.
But he gave her silver, and he paid her hotel bills,
But it was me that she loved, she said she always will.
I'd go and see her whenever Billy was gone,

Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we ain't never got along, NO!
Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we never got along.
Didn't like the way he tied his shoes, and he wore his gun all wrong.
One day I told Billy, said "I've got the fooled proof scheme,
We'll rob the Wells Fargo; she's bustin' at the seems."
I knew that I had framed him, but I don't feel bad,
The way that I was living, was driving me mad.
Billy went for his gun, but his gun was all wrong,
Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we ain't never got along.
Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we never got along,
But I sure liked the way he swayed in the wind when I played his favorite songs.
Now my girlfriend sings harmony to "La Cucaracha",
We sit and wind that pocket watch, and we pet her little Chihuahua.
Move into the hotel, I got a room with a shower,
I like listening to that watch tick hour after hour.
And outside the wind, well it's blowing on so strong,
Yeah Me and Billy the Kid, we ain't never got along, NO!
