Marty Robbins', "Billy The Kid"
The Lyrics:
I'll sing you how
Billy the Kid met his fate
The bright moon was shinin',
the hour was late
Shot down by Pat Garrett
who once was his friend,
The young outlaw's life
is now come to an end
Who They Mention:
Billy The Kid

Marty Robbins', "Billy The Kid"
The Lyrics:
Was on a sad night
when poor Billy died
He said to his friend,
'I'm not satisfied
There's twenty-one men
I have put bullets through
Sheriff Pat Garrett
must make twenty-two!'
Who They Mention:
Sheriff Pat Garrett
