lyrics

As I went out to take a little walk
I came upon that Wild Bill Jones
He was a walking & a talking by my true lovers side
And I bid him to leave her alone

He said my age is twenty-one
Too old to be controlled
I pulled my revolver from my side
And I destroyed that poor boy’s soul

He reeled and he staggered and he fell to the ground
And then he gave one dying moan
He threw is arms around my little girl’s neck
And said Honey won’t you take me home

So put those handcuffs on me boys
And take me to that freight car jail
I have no friends or relations there
No one to go my bail

So pass around that long neck bottle
And we’ll all go on a spree
Today saw the end of Wild Bill Jones
Tomorrow will be the end of me
