Alaska Lil and Texas Bill Recorded by Hawkshaw Hawkins Written by Jimmy Lowe and Art Wolpert
G D7 G Way up in the wild summerless Alaska land D7 G There was a gal that could whip any man C G D7 She was as tough as a diamond pointed drill G D7 G And the folks all called her Alaska Lil D7 G (folks all called her Alaska Lil)
D7 G Lil was born when the timber was thin D7 G She told everybody she hated all men C G She carried a rifle and a big Bowie knife D7 G She swore she'd never be any man’s wife D7 G (swore she'd never be anyone’s wife)
C G Now the tales they told on Alaska Lil C G Finally got around to Texas Bill C G Texas Bill was second to none D7 G A fightin' shootin' son of a gun
D7 G He said when they met he'd tame Miss Lil D7 G Sure as his name was Texas Bill C G When this was done he swore by his life D7 G To marry this gal and make her his wife D7 G (marry this gal and make her his wife)
C G Now this didn't worry Alaska Lil C G Cause she never head of Texas Bill C G Said she still liked living alone D7 G Never a man could call her his own
D7 G Then Bill showed up one cold winter day D7 G Told all the folks he had something to say C G If Lil is around he was here to call D7 G Tell her lets settle this once and for all D7 G (Tell her lets settle this once and for all)
C G When Lil got the word she was fit to be tied C G Swore she'd tear off Texas Bill's hide C G She rode into town with blood in her eyes D7 G And said to Texas it's now do or die
D7 G I've heard some stories about this brawl D7 G Some say the best of it was nothing at all C G Still others say she fought the fight of her life D7 G She still ended up as Texas Bill's wife D7 G (She still ended up as Texas Bill's wife)
C G Now Bill comes to town every once in awhile C G With a grin on his face you can see for a mile C G Says all that Lil wants for the rest of her life D7 G Is just being happy as Texas Bill's wife D7 G (just being happy as Texas Bill's wife)
