Written by Chris Knight/Austin Cunningham
CD – The Jealous Kind

Capo 2 

G           CaddG           G  
Me and Billy were roofers of houses
  G                            D
We met at the Louisville union hall
       G        CaddG              G
It was like I'd found my long lost brother
   G                               D   
We drank like fish and worked like dogs
        G      CaddG                G
Looking back I knew he'd get me in trouble
    G                      D
But I didn't have too many friends
G              CaddG           G
Running up and down that Dixie highway
G                                     D
We thought the good times would never end

          Em  C      G
Down that long black highway
Em        C         D 
There's a deep dark hole
          Em  C      G 
Down that long black highway
Em               D                   CaddG   G
There's a lot of things you'll never know

We chased women and we chased whiskey
Then one night we ran out of money
And we robbed us an all night Texaco
Right in there I guess the friendship ended
That's where the good times fell apart
I remember screaming at Billy
You should've let that kid alone, you should've drove off in the dark


Well we pulled off on a back road
I thought to think about what we'd done
I got out and took a leak and lit a smoke
but now I'm wishing I had run
'Cause Billy always was a mean one
And he was stoned out of his head
I guess that he quit shooting
When he thought that i was dead


I woke up sometime around daylight
But I didn't live long after that
I was taken back up to the highway 
By a ghost, he was wearing a Texaco hat 
Now me and that kid we haunt that stretch of highway 
We go see Billy from time to time 
You know Billy always acted a little bit crazy
But now he's done gone plumb out of his mind
