Billy left on Friday night with twenty dollars cash
Had a thousand more and a diamond on his hand
When he got back
I don't know just where Billy got that dough 

 Saturday he spent in style  Drinks were on the house  Lincoln here, and a Jackson there
 Suspicions were aroused 

A dime was dropped and a name was named 
A body soon was found 
A travelin' Bible salesman on his monthly trip to town
 Three bullet holes 

A .38 done took his soul
What do you know
No diamond ring no money roll
A quick investigation

They dragged Billy to the station 
And broke him down with the third degree
His alibi unraveled
 Judge Riley banged his gavel 

A 12-man jury all agreed 
So he must be guilty 
I knew Billy spent that night 
 Winning big at cards 

And the salesman was a married man
Who broke my sisters heart
 Billy sits in Levenworth 
 Waiting for the gas

And I know lots of other things
But no one ever asked 
So they'll never know
 Swear to God they'll never know
Case is closed, that's how the story will be told
