LYRIC

Ol' Bill

Tell Old Bill when he comes home this mornin’
Tell Old Bill when he comes home this ev’nin’
Tell Old Bill when he comes home
To leave those downtown women alone
This mornin’, this ev’nin’, so soon

Bill’s woman was a-bakin’ bread this mornin’
Bill’s woman was a-bakin’ bread this ev’nin’
Bill’s woman was a-bakin’ bread
When they brought her the news that her Bill was dead
This mornin’, this ev’nin’, so soon

Oh, no, can’t be so this mornin’
Oh, no, can’t be so this ev’nin’
Oh, no, can’t be so
I saw my Bill about an hour ago
This mornin’, this ev’nin’, so soon

They’re bringin’ Bill home in a hurry-up wagon this mornin’
They’re bringin’ Bill home in a hurry-up wagon this ev’nin’
They’re bringin’ Bill home in a hurry-up wagon
Can’t you see how his shoes are a-draggin’
This mornin’, this ev’nin’, so soon

Tell Old Bill when he comes home this mornin’
Tell Old Bill when he comes home this ev’nin’
Tell Old Bill when he comes home
To leave those downtown women alone
This mornin’, this ev’nin’, so soon
This mornin’, this ev’nin’, so soon
