Northern Wind (Death of Billy the Kid)

There is a wind, my Billy and it’s awful strong,
Come for you and anyone who’s helped you along.
But I want to live, live, live and let the stars shine bright.
Yes, I want to live, live, live and let it on alright.
And when that bird sings from over that silver wall,
I don’t want to fight it, Billy ’cause I want to go,
There’s a northern wind Billy, blowing up a southern change.
And a northern wind’s really making me feel kind of strange.
There’s a northern wind Billy, blowing up a southern change.
And a northern wind’s really making me feel kind of strange.
And with this gun goes everything I want to say,
Not for you but anyone who takes it away,
Let it feel his life, life, life until there’s nothing left,
Let it kill his wife’s love until he goes too bad.
And when that bird sings from over that silver wall,
I don’t want to fight it, Billy ’cause I want to go,
There’s a northern wind Billy, blowing up a southern change.
And a northern wind’s really making me feel kind of strange.
There’s a northern wind Billy, blowing up a southern change.
And a northern wind Billy making me feel kind of strange.
There’s a northern wind Billy, blowing up a southern change.
