Billy isn't feeling strong,
Can't stay awake too long.
Listens as he lies to a solitary song.
Billy isn't feeling strong.

[Hum the verse]

There were other times, God knows.
There were other places.
There were laughing eyes, God knows,
And beautiful faces.
Now they've disappeared from view.
They've faded and gone.
They were lovers he once knew,
Now he's all alone.

Billy got some bad news today.
illy better learn how to pray.
He went to the doctor, doctor turned away.
Billy got some bad news today.
He went to the doctor, doctor turned away.
Billy got some bad news today.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1991)
