Billy we've come along way together and through it all You've been just like a brother to me And Billy we've had our share of ups and downs Froze our tails sleeping on the ground When the jobs were few and far between.
We've been knocking around together so long Singing them same old songs Been out in the rain so long I swear we're shrinking Billy lately I have done some thinking.
When I look back on our lives We've sure had ourself a time But you know it's been a wild world we traveled And it's startin' to unravel.
We leave so many loose ends behind We've been bucked off and kicked so many times And the ground just keeps gettin' harder Billy you know well as I we ain't gettin' no younger.
Billy another summer's come and gone Now with winter coming on I know we planned on heading south But Billy I thought about it several days And these words I'm about to say.
They don't taste good in my mouth But there's someone who's waiting back home Lord, if she'll still have me Guess I'll be saying so long you go on without me.
Ain't no easy way of saying goodbye So be sure and tell 'em all down in Texas I said hi
