Some like to drink or gamble, Billy liked to fight
   C                   Bb            F
He tracked back to his home state of Maryland

Rockaway the days, rockaway the nights
      C                     Bb             F
Gimme something to last me, baby, till the morning light
  C                 Bb               F
I ain't lookin' for trouble, I ain't looking for a fight
      C              Bb             F           C Bb | F | C Bb | F
Honey rockaway these days, rockaway these nights

Well at a picnic one Sunday Billy met Mary Dove
C              Bb           F
Mary looked at Billy, Billy fell in love
C              Bb               F
Billy swore to Mary he'd always love her so
          C              Bb               F                   C Bb | F
They were married in the valley where the river flows, alright

Rockaway the days, rockaway the nights
      C                     Bb             F
Gimme something to last me, baby, till the morning light

Honey rockaway these days, rockaway these nights 

     C        Bb        F
At a roadside bar Billy argued with a young man
       C            Bb              F
And he settled that argument with a razor in his hand
     C            Bb            F
With blood on his shirt back to Mary he did run
    C                 Bb          F              C Bb | F
She sighed "Billy, oh Billy, what have you done?" 

          C           Bb           F
He ran to his ma's trailer but the lights were dim
   C              Bb                 F
He pounded on the door, she wouldn't let him in
       C              Bb    F
Up the road to a neighbor's house he drew near
           C        Bb             F                      C  Bb | F | C Bb | F
They said "Billy go away, we don't want no trouble 'round here"

C             Bb             F
Billy stole a car and headed out on the road
C            Bb                  F
Pocketful of pills and his brain on overload
          C                      Bb                   F
Seen some lights in his rearview mirror, panicked and gave her the gun
        C                    Bb         F             C Bb | F | C Bb | F
Wrapped himself 'round a telephone pole way out on 101 

           C       Bb             F
Well Billy got cut out by the highway patrol
     C                  Bb   F
Just lay there with the cars passing on slow
        C            Bb      F
Sheriff told Billy's ma that Billy died
    C          Bb          F                 C Bb | F
She buried his body by the riverside, alright 

C            Bb             F

      C                     Bb             F
Gimme something to last me, baby, till the morning light
  C                 Bb               F
I ain't lookin' for trouble, I ain't looking for a fight
      C              Bb             F           C Bb | F | C Bb | F

C                 Bb         F
