(G)

Transpose


1.

|G / / / |/ / / / As I went out for to take a little walk, |G / D / |G / / And I walked u-pon that Wild Bill Jones, / |G / / / |/ / / He was walkin’ - and talkin’ by my true lover’s side, / |G / D / |G / / / I bid him for to leave her a-lone.

2.

He says my age it is just twenty-one, Too old for to be controlled, I drew my revolver from my side, I destroyed that poor boy’s soul.

3.

Well he kicked and he staggered boys he fell to the ground, And he give one dying groan, I throwed my arms around my true lover’s neck, Saying, "Honey, won't you carry me home".

4.

So put them handcuffs on me boys, And lead me to that freight car gate, I have no friends or relations there, No one for to go my bail.

5.

Well it’s pass around your long neck bottle, And we’ll all get on a spree, For today was the last of old Wild Bill Jones, And tomorrow’ll be the last of me.
