The Ballad of Billy the Kid (Live) - Billy Joel (比利·喬爾)

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 travelled 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 largest could not seem to track him down

 

And it served his legend well

For the folks they loved to tell about

 

When Billy the kid came to town

 

One cold day a posse captured Billy

 

And the judge said String him up for what he did

 

And the cowboys and their kin

Like the sea came pouring in

To watch the hanging of Billy the kid

 

Eell he never travelled 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

 

Under 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
