ME AND BILLY THE KID (Joe Ely) Joe Ely Also recorded by : Ramblin' Jack Elliott; Pat Green; Marty Stuart. Me and Billy the Kid never got along I didn't like the way he cocked his hat and he wore his gun all wrong. We had the same girlfriend and he never forgot it She had a cute little Chihuahua until one day he up and shot it He rode the hard country down the New Mexico line He had a silver pocketwatch that he never did wind. He crippled the piano player for playin' his favorite song No, Me and Billy the Kid never got along Me and Billy the Kid never got along I didn't like the way he parted his hair and he wore his gun all wrong He was bad to the bone All hopped up on speed. I would've left him alone If it wasn't for that Senorita He gave her silver and he paid her hotel bill But it was me she loved and she said she always will. I'd always go and see her when Billy was gone Yeah, Me and Billy the Kid never got along Me and Billy the Kid never got along I didn't like the way he tied his shoes and he wore his gun all wrong One day I said to Billy "I've got this foolproof scheme" We'll rob Wells Fargo "It's bustin at the seams." I admit that I framed him but I don't feel bad Cause the way I was livin' was drivin' me mad Billy reached for his gun but his gun was on wrong Yeah, Me and Billy the Kid never got along Me and Billy the Kid never got along But I did like the way he swayed in the wind While I played him his favorite song Now my baby sings harmony with me To "La Cucaracha" She winds her silver pocket watch And pets her new Chihuahua I moved in to the Hotel and got a room with a shower We lay and listen to that watch tick hour after hour Outside I hear the wind blowin' o so strong Me and Billy the Kid never got along (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - February 2005)
