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
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
