music & lyrics by Jim Clemetson

Gray's & Rose St.


Wild Bill
Honey, you're too good for me
It's your heart
All you ever wanted
Moonless night
For the money
Good night
Me, lovin' you
Shades of gray
Time traveler
What good would it do?
Younger, older woman
Nag, nag, nag
I don't know how to love you
Maybe next time

"Wild Bill" by James C. Clemetson

Return to "Folk'n'Roll"
"Wild Bill"

I was feeling just a little like
Wild Bill Hickok
That's why my back was turned
facing the wall

There's folks around
that'll tell you I'm up to no good
but I'm really not up to nothing at all

There's those that know
and those that think they do
Sometimes it's hard to
tell the difference
between the two

There's those that'll help you up
and those that'll walk on you
I might not know the truth
but I wouldn't lie to you

JC photoThere's gold out in the
Black Hills of Dakota
And men will dig it up
when it is found

They'll melt it down into bars
Lock it up behind bars
Hire guards to keep it safe
somewhere downtown

Repeat Chorus:

Well, I might be a good guy or a bad man
It all depends upon your point of view
'cause the bankers buy the books that'll tell our children
what they think they ought to think about me and you

Repeat Chorus:

Shade blue
All you ever wanted
Good night
Wild Bill
Honey, you're too good for me
Shades of gray
Water falls
Everyday blues
Be with me
Maybe next time

Return to main

Broken wing
Sunday clothes
Don't call it love
Everyday blues
You are love
