 F/G - C/G   C/G - G    x2

          G            Em                 F            G           Em             F - C - D
  From a town known as Wheeling, West Virginia, rode a boy with a six-gun in his hand
          G               Em                  F            C - G 
  And his daring life of crime,  made him a legend in his time
           Am7         D7sus    F/G - C/G   C/G - G
  East and west of the Rio Grande


              G           Em           F             G            Em              F - C - D
  Well, he started with a bank in Colorado, in the pocket of his vest, a Colt he hid
          G            Em             F             C - G
  And his age and his size, took the teller by surprise
            Am7         D7sus           F/G - C/G   C/G - G
  And the word spread of Billy the Kid

           C               D             Em            Bm          
  Well, he never traveled heavy, yes, he always rode alone
           C            C/D             G7sus                    
  And he soon put many older guns to shame
           C           D                 Em          Bm 
  And he never had a sweetheart, and he never had a home
          C                                    Dsus4   D
  But the cowboy and the rancher knew his name

            G                  Em           F            G                  Em              F-C-D
  Well, he robbed his way from Utah to Oklahoma,and the law just could not seem to track him down
           G               Em             F                      C - G
  And it served his legend well, for the folks, they'd love to tell
              Am7         D7sus          F/G - C/G   C/G - G
  'Bout when Billy the Kid came to town

      (PIANO INTERLUDE)

         G              Em             F              G                      Em             F-C-D
  Well, one cold day a posse captured Billy, and the judge said, "String 'im up for what he did!"
           G                Em             F               C - G
  And the cowboys and their kin, like the sea came pourin' in
                Am7    D7sus             F/G - C/G   C/G - G
  To watch the hangin',  of Billy the Kid

            C               D            Em            Bm
  Well, he never traveled heavy, yes, he always rode alone
           C           C/D             G7sus
  And he soon put many older guns to shame
          C            D                 Em              Bm
  And he never had a sweetheart, but he finally found a home
         C                                       Dsus4   D
  Underneath the boothill grave that bears his name

          G            Em                F              G         Em               F - C - D
  From a town known as Oyster Bay, Long Island, rode a boy with a six-pack in his hand
           G              Em                F             C - G
  And his daring life of crime, made him a legend in his time
            Am7 D7sus             F/G - C/G   C/G - G
  East and west of the Rio Grande

For the piano interlude, you could play it as chords, as follows:

C F G G C Gm C F F G
Em F C F C C F Gm C G
C F G G C Gm C F F G
Em F C F C C F Gm G C

Playing Gm as 577555 (EADGBe)

The Gm can be played as an Am7, instead.
