Billy And Sue
B. J. Thomas & The Triumphs

This is A story about billy and sue
They were as in love as were any two
And then billy had to die
And when you hear the reason why --
You'll hang your head and cry

Billy and sue met the first day of school
And ever since lived by the golden rule
Because when you do unto others
What you wouldn't want done to you
You'd have to be A fool

This mutual agreement of love and trust
Made them travel the road to marriage or bust
And when billy was old enough to take A wife
He was old enough to fight for his country---
And his way of life

Bridge- sue's letters came every day
Strengthened his cause, they showed him the way
To fight for his country and the girl he loves---
That's A soldier's only pay

But then billy heard no more from sue
He was worried sick but what could he do
The bullets were screamin' as he hugged the ground and back
Home sue was runnin' round

Billy was getting less and less strong
His hope his faith was almost gone
And then like A miracle A letter appeared
Billy tore the letter open and it read,
"DEAR JOHN"

A look came over billy that would scare the ghost
Of a million single soldiers -- coast to coast
And even tho the air was filled with lead
Billy jumped up
They shot him dead

Billy was buried in A faraway grave that read,
"FOR HIS COUNTRY -- HIS LIFE HE GAVE"
But the epitaph -- was only A part
He didn't die from A bullet but he died
From A broken heart
