about

A story about a man named Billy who robs a bank to save his little girl.

lyrics

Billy
R. Cain

(A) Billy was a strong man, you could (C) tell by his rugged (D) hands and his old (A) tattoos
(A) 20 years he worked the mill (C) but it never was (D) enough when the bills came (A) due
Billy was good man, for his family’s sake he always did come through
Billy was an honest man, but it’s hard to say what a desperate man will do

CH
(E) So it should come as no (A) surprised
(E) The things a desperate man will (A) try
(E) When the future of his (D) family’s on the (A) line

Well I bet you’d do the same
Risk a number for your name
If you had the chance to see that sick girl smile

Billy checked his watch again but he knew the armored truck came in at four
When the time came he was ready, with a shotgun he kicked open the door
“Just give up the money, get down now and relax there on the floor”
He took what he could carry, just enough to buy his little girl a cure

Billy is a lonely man, from town to town he roams with out a home
Fifteen years of running, but it’s been worth every mile to see her grown
He writes her every Sunday from a somewhere off the map and all alone
Billy was a good man, and he gave her life at the high cost of his own
