Billy was a Bird dog

He pulled up in a Bonneville

I went to see my manager

He usually handles these things



Billy pulled his wallet

Full of hundred dollar bills
Took me for a joyride



Drivin' in the left lane
Talkin' 'bout the stereo

I'm thinkin' 'bout my burial



We pulled into the liquor store
And he was underage


And all he said to me was
Put your money away




'Cause Billy is a runaway



Billy's got a Family

Gonna skin him alive


His dope dealing sister
Wants him to join the enterprise



I leave him at the motel
They can talk it all over


His sister's got a baby now

And Billy hardly knows her



Well I'm a friendly kind of guy

And I had to have him over

I gave him a drink


What do you think
His hands start shakin'
His boots start quakin'




Billy is a runaway (x4)



Runaway (x3)



His hands start shakin'
His boots start quakin'




Runaway baby



Billy is a runaway (x2)
