#1.
A                                        D
Mama said,'There's something weird about Billy..
  A               
I looked in his room, his bed wasn't slept in at 
    E
all last night.'
    A                                               D
But Papa said, 'Ah, now, Mama, don't you go talking silly.
            G                    D
He's just a young boy, he's just sowing his wild oats..
    A
and that's all right.

#2.
    A
But Mama said, 'No, there's something real strange about 
   D
my Billy.
    A                                              E
The farmer down the road said he lost a few of his sheep 

last night.
               A                       
I know he's my own flesh and blood but he makes my blood 
    D
run chilly..
        G                          D
Cause I saw him from my window and he was on the hill
     A
just screaming at the moonlight.

CHORUS:
E                                   A
Is it any wonder we hate to see the sun go down?
    E                                   A
And is it any wonder we hate to see the full moon coming around?

#3.
A                                                          D
So, Papa said, 'I guess there's only one thing to do about Billy.
A                                                 E
Hand me down my gun, son..bring along that silver dinner bell.
    A                                  D
But Mama said, 'Papa, I beg you, don't kill him..
        G                     D                      A
Cause I just couldn't bear to think about my baby in Hell.

#4.
A 
But he went down to the blacksmith, got him out of bed and said,
 D                       A
'Get your fire hot...oh, shut up your shutters and close down 
                       E
the doors..We're gonna need all the heat you got.
        A                                         D
Cause I want you to melt my silver bell down to a single shot.
        G               D                             A
I got a job to do and I got to get it done before the sun comes up.'

CHORUS:
E                                          A
Is it any wonder we hate to see the sun go down?
  
#5.
A                                      D
Then we heard a shot and I said, 'Papa got 'im.'
        A                                         E
Then we heard a scream and Mama smiled and said, 'Betcha Billy got him."
           A                                                D
But when I lifted up my eyes, there was Papa in the doorway staring 

at the floor.
       G                       D                 A
And my big brother Billy never did come home, no more.

CHORUS:
E                                   A
Is it any wonder we hate to see the sun go down?
    E                                   A
And is it any wonder we hate to see the full moon coming around?
