Ralph Stanley – Wild Bill Jones chords

GAs I went out for to take a little walk
D GI came upon that Wild Bill Jones
GHe was walkin' and a-talkin' by my true lover's side
D GAnd I bid him to leave her alone
[Solo] G D G G D G [Verse]
GHe said, "My age is twenty-one,
D GToo old to be controlled."
GI pulled my pistol from my side
D GAnd I destroyed that poor boy's soul
[Solo] G D G G D G [Verse]
GHe reeled and he staggered then he fell to the ground
D GAnd then he gave one dyin' moan
GWell, he wrapped his arms around my little girl's neck
D GSaid "Honey, won't you take me home."
[Solo] G D G G D G [Verse]
GSo put them handcuffs on me boys
D GAnd lead me to that freight car gate
GI have no friends or relations there
D GNo one for to go my bail
[Solo] G D G G D G [Verse]
GSo pass around that ol' longneck bottle
D GAnd we'll all go on a spree
GToday saw the last of Wild Bill Jones
D GAnd tomorrow'll be the last of me
