    (Traditional, arranged by Ry Cooder)
    (G) - (D)

    (G) I'll sing you a true song of (D) Billy the (G) Kid
    I'll (D) sing the record of (G) deeds that he did
    Way out in New Mexico a long time (D) ago
    When a (G) man's only friend was his (D) own forty- (G) four

    Now when Billy the Kid was a very young lad
    In old Silver City he went to the bad
    Way out west with a knife in his hand
    At the age of twelve years he killed his first man

    Fair Mexican maidens play guitars and sing
    Songs about Billy their boy bandit king
    Before this young manhood reached its sad end
    He'd a notch on his pistol for twenty one men

    It was on one black night that poor Billy died
    He said to his friends, "I'm not satisfied
    There's twenty one men that I've put bullets through
    And sheriff Pat Garrett's gonna make twenty-two"

    Well, this is how Billy the Kid met his fate
    A big moon was shining and the hour was late
    Shot down by Pat Garrett, Silver City's best friend
    The poor outlaw's life have reached its sad end
