    Billy got out of prison but he wasn't right
    Some like to drink or gamble, Billy liked to fight
    He tracked back to his home state of Maryland
    Went to his mom's mobile home where she took him in, alright

    Rockaway the days, rockaway the nights
    Gimme something to last me, baby, till the morning light
    I ain't lookin' for trouble, I ain't looking for a fight
    Honey rockaway these days, rockaway these nights

    Well at a picnic one Sunday Billy met Mary Dove
    Mary looked at Billy, Billy fell in love
    Billy swore to Mary he'd always love her so
    They were married in the valley where the river flows, alright


    At a roadside bar Billy argued with a young man
    And he settled that argument with a razor in his hand
    With blood on his shirt back to Mary he did run
    She sighed "Billy, oh Billy, what have you done?"

    He ran to his ma's trailer but the lights were dim
    He pounded on the door, she wouldn't let him in
    Up the road to a neighbor's house he drew near
    They said "Billy go away, we don't want no trouble 'round here"
    Billy stole a car and headed out on the road
    Pocketful of pills and his brain on overload
    Seen some lights in his rearview mirror, panicked and gave her the gun
    Wrapped himself 'round a telephone pole way out on 101

    Well Billy got cut out by the highway patrol
    Just lay there with the cars passing on slow
    Sheriff told Billy's ma that Billy died
    She buried his body by the riverside, alright


    Well rich man want the power and the seat on the top
    Poor man want the money that the rich man got
    Honey tonight I'm feeling so tired and unsure
    Come on in Mary, shut the light, close the door
