The Ballad Of Billy The Kid - Billy Joel (比利·喬)

From a town known as Wheeling West Virginia

 

Rode a boy with a six-gun in his hand

 

And his daring life of crime

 

Made him a legend in his time

 

East and west of the Rio Grande

 

Well he started with a bank in Colorado

 

In the pocket of his vest a Colt he hid

 

And his age and his size

 

Took the teller by surprise

 

And the word spread of Billy the Kid

 

Well he never traveled heavy

 

Yes he always rode alone

 

And he soon put many older guns to shame

 

And he never had a sweetheart

 

And he never had a home

 

But the cowboy and the rancher knew his name

 

Well he robbed his way from Utah to Oklahoma

 

And the law just could not seem to track him down

 

And it served his legend well

 

For the folks they'd love to tell

'Bout when Billy the Kid came to town

 

Well one cold day a posse captured Billy

 

And the judge said "String 'im up for what he did "

 

And the cowboys and their kin

Like the sea came pourin' in

To watch the hangin' of Billy the Kid

 

Well he never traveled heavy

Yes he always rode alone

 

And he soon put many older guns to shame

 

And he never had a sweetheart

 

But he finally found a home

 

Underneath the boothill grave that bears his name

From a town known as Oyster Bay Long Island

 

Rode a boy with a six-pack in his hand

 

And his daring life of crime

Made him a legend in his time

 

East and west of the Rio Grande
