I'll sing you a true song of Billy the Kid, And tell of the desperate deeds that he did, Out here in the West, boys, in New Mexico, When a man's best friend was his old Forty-four. When Billy the Kid was a very young lad, In old Silver City, he went to be bad; At twelve years of age the Kid killed his first man, Then blazed a wide trail with a gun in each hand.
