Wild Bill Jones LyricsArtist: Alison Krauss
Album: Two Highways
I came upon that Wild Bill Jones
He was aâ‚¬â„¢walkinâ‚¬â„¢ and aâ‚¬â„¢talkinâ‚¬â„¢ by my true loverâ‚¬â„¢s side
And I bid him to leave her alone
He said my age is 21, too old to be controlled
I pulled my revolver from my side,
And I destroyed that poor boyâ‚¬â„¢s soul
He reeled and he staggered and he fell to the ground
And then he gave one dying moan
He wrapped his arms around my little girlâ‚¬â„¢s neck,
Sayinâ‚¬â„¢ â‚¬Å“Honey wonâ‚¬â„¢t ya take me home?â‚¬?
So put them handcuffs on me boys,
And lead me to that freight-car gate
I have no friends or relations there,
No one for to go my bail
So pass around that ole long-neck bottle
And weâ‚¬â„¢ll all go on a spreeâ‚¬
Today saw the last of Wild Bill Jones,
And tomorrowâ‚¬â„¢ll be the last of me.
