     4/ Intro: ///////// (bend) /////////
      4        ///

        Verse 1
                                               
        Billy's lady told him-let this be understood

                                         
        somethin' better happen soon  cause things don't

                                       
        look to good---tired of savin' pennies-tryin' to

                                     
        make ends meet-come next Monday afternoon-we're

                                 
        gonna be out in the street


        Verse 2
                                              
        Billy thought it over-he said with a smile

                                                   /f#
        everythings gonna be allright-just a little while

                                             
        gotta get down to it-pack my things and go

                                                      
        he put on his tennis shoes-walked out into the snow.

        Chorus:
                                            
        Oh Billy Tyler do you remember what you said

                                             
        does your conscience get you when your lyin'

                    
        in your bed. Does it make you sorry for the

                               
        things that you've done -do you feel repentance

                                                
        on the tip of your tongue-did you have to grab
                            ~
                           (Bend) //////
        your things and ru---n


        Verse 3
                                               
        She received a postcard-sad for her that way

                                                  /f#
        said I found myself a job-here at whitesand bay

                                            
        sendin' you some money-so that you can eat

                                   
        everythings gonna be allright-soon be back on

               
        my feet

        Repeat chorus:

        Fadeout on- ////////////


         The ~ over the F# chord means to bend the whole
        chord up one fret. If you listen to the record
        you will get what I mean. This is a great album
