Flatt & Scruggs – Philadelphia Lawyer lyrics

Way out in Reno Nevada where the romances bloom and they fade
Was a great Philadelphia lawyer was in love with a Hollywood maid
Come love and we will wander down where the lights are so bright
I'll win you the divorce from your husband and we can get married tonight
Now Bill was a guntotin' cowboy with ten notches carved on his gun
And all the boys around Reno left Wild Bill's darlin' alone
One night when Bill was returning from ridin' the range in the cold
He thought of his Hollywood darlin' with her love as lasting as gold
[ dobro ]
As Bill drew near to her window two shadows he saw on the shade
Twas the great Philadelphia lawyer making love to his Hollywood maid
The night was as still as the desert and the moon hanging high overhead
Bill listened awhile in her window he could hear every word that they said
Your face is so pretty and lovelyand your form so rare and divine
Come and go with me to Philadelphia and leave this wild cowboy behind
Well tonight back in old Pennsylvania among the beautiful pines
There's one less Philadelphia lawyer in old Philadelphia tonight
