Waylon Jennings – Billy lyrics

Billy we've come along way together and through it all
You've been just like a brother to me
And Billy we've had our share of ups and downs froze our tails sleeping on the ground
When the jobs were few and far between
We've been knocking around together so long singing them same old songs
Been out in the rain so long I swear we're shrinking
Billy lately I have done some thinking when I look back on our lives
We've sure had ourself a time
But you know it's been a wild world we traveled
And it's startin' to unravel we leave so many loose ends behind
We've been bucked off and kicked so many times
And the ground just keeps gettin' harder
Billy you know well as I we ain't gettin' no younger
[ harmonica ]
Billy another summer's come and gone now with winter coming on
I know we planned on heading south
But Billy I thought about it several days and these words I'm about to say
They don't taste good in my mouth
But there's someone who's waiting back home Lord if she'll still have me
Guess I'll be saying so long you go on without me
Ain't no easy way of saying goodbye
So be sure and tell 'em all down in Texas I said hi
