Billy McCoy
Recorded by Jim Ed and The Browns
Written by Melvin Schmidt
[3/4 time]

C G
Where is my Billy my Billy McCoy
D7 G
Where is the boy of my dreams
C G
Singing this song as the boat rolls along
D7 G Em
Heading for ole New Orleans uhuh
G D7 G
Heading for ole New Orleans

C G
I once had a lover named Billy McCoy
A7 D7
He lived by the river's big bend
G C G
One warm summer day Billy wandered away
D7 G
He's gone but our love didn't end

C G
They say he went down where the riverboats dock
A7 D7
With nary a cent in his jeans
G C G
A barefooted lad who could sing round the clock
D7 G
And wanted to see New Orleans

Repeat #1

C G
He took his guitar and he sang very well
A7 D7
A riverboat crew heard him there
G C G
They took him aboard on the Big Dixie Bell
D7 G
To sing for his dinner and fare

C G
I pray every night that he misses me so
A7 D7
And after he sees New Orleans
G C G
He'll sing his way home for he loves me I know
D7 G
My barefooted boy in blue jeans

Repeat #1
