Billy Joel - Ballad Of Billy The Kid chords


 F/G - C/G   C/G - G    x2

G Em F G Em F - C - D From a town known as Wheeling, West Virginia, rode a boy with a six-gun in his hand
G Em F C - G And his daring life of crime, made him a legend in his time
Am7 D7sus F/G - C/G C/G - G East and west of the Rio Grande
G Em F G Em F - C - D Well, he started with a bank in Colorado, in the pocket of his vest, a Colt he hid
G Em F C - G And his age and his size, took the teller by surprise
Am7 D7sus F/G - C/G C/G - G And the word spread of Billy the Kid
C D Em Bm Well, he never traveled heavy, yes, he always rode alone
C C/D G7sus And he soon put many older guns to shame
C D Em Bm And he never had a sweetheart, and he never had a home
C Dsus4 D But the cowboy and the rancher knew his name
G Em F G Em F-C-D Well, he robbed his way from Utah to Oklahoma,and the law just could not seem to track him down
G Em F C - G And it served his legend well, for the folks, they'd love to tell
Am7 D7sus F/G - C/G C/G - G 'Bout when Billy the Kid came to town
(PIANO INTERLUDE)
G Em F G Em F-C-D Well, one cold day a posse captured Billy, and the judge said, "String 'im up for what he did!"
G Em F C - G And the cowboys and their kin, like the sea came pourin' in
Am7 D7sus F/G - C/G C/G - G To watch the hangin', of Billy the Kid
C D Em Bm Well, he never traveled heavy, yes, he always rode alone
C C/D G7sus And he soon put many older guns to shame
C D Em Bm And he never had a sweetheart, but he finally found a home
C Dsus4 D Underneath the boothill grave that bears his name
G Em F G Em F - C - D From a town known as Oyster Bay, Long Island, rode a boy with a six-pack in his hand
G Em F C - G And his daring life of crime, made him a legend in his time
Am7 D7sus F/G - C/G C/G - G East and west of the Rio Grande
