Way out in Reno Nevada Where romance blooms and fades A great Philadelphia lawyer Was in love with a Hollywood maid Come love and we will wander Down where the lights are bright I'll win you a divorce from your husband And we can get married tonight Now, Bill was a gun totin' cowboy Ten notches were carved on his gun And all the boys around Reno Left Wild Bill's maiden alone One night when he was returning >From riding the range in the cold He dreamed of his Hollywood sweetheart Her love was as lasting as gold As he drew near her window Two shadows he saw in the shade Twas a great Philadelphia lawyer Making love to Bill's Hollywood maid The night was as still as the desert The moon hanging high overhead Bill listened awhile to the window He could hear every word that was said Your hands are so pretty and lovely Your form so rare and divine Come go with me to the city And leave this wild cowboy behind Tonight back in old Pennsylvania Among those beautiful pines There's one less Philadelphia lawyer In old Philadelphia tonight (Contributed by - January 2009)
