Dadd9/sus4: 554030

Strapped on my holster low across my hips
Two Colt .45s with white plastic grips
[Dadd9sus4]I'd head we[Am9]st through our n[Dadd9sus4]eighbor - h[Am9]ood they'd say
Here comes young Billy and he's up to no good
I rode a trail through the neighbors' back yards
Shootin' the bad guys through my handlebars
[Dadd9sus4]Known for my b[Am9]ravery both [Dadd9sus4]far and n[Am9]ear
Being late for supper way my only fear
[E]I miss Billy the [D]kid the times that he [A]had
The life that he [E]lived[D] [F#m]
[E]I guess he must have got [D]caught his innocence [A]lost
I wonder where he [E]is I miss [GAdd9]Billy the [A]kid
These days I don't know whose side to be on
There's such a thin line between right and wrong
[Dadd9sus4]I live and l[Am9]earn do the [Dadd9sus4]best that I c[Am9]an
There's only so much you can do as a man
This is an arrangement not a direct transcription of the
recording; itís intended for solo acoustic fingerstyle.
I think original key was Eb (capo 6). Anyone who wants it in D with
alternate tuning, e-mail me.
