Billy we've come along way together
And through it all you've been just like a brother to me
And Billy we've had our share of ups and downs
Froze our tails sleeping on the ground
When the jobs were few and far between

We've been knocking around together so long
Singing them same old songs
Been out in the rain so long, I swear we're shrinking

Billy lately I have done some thinking
When I look back on our lives
We've sure had ourselves a time
But you know it's been a wild world we traveled
And it's startin' to unravel
We leave so many loose ends behind

We've been bucked off and kicked so many times
And the ground just keeps getting harder
Billy you know well as I, we ain't getting no younger

Billy another summer's come and gone
Now with winter coming on
I know we planned on heading south
But Billy I thought about it several days
And these words I'm about to say
They don't taste good in my mouth

But there's someone who's waiting back home
Lord, if she'll still have me
Guess I'll be saying so long, you go on without me

Ain't no easy way of saying goodbye
So be sure and tell 'em all down in Texas
I said,"Hi"

White, Tony Joe
