Bad Eye Bill

Thank the good Lord for Rock & Roll .
Thank the good Lord for Gin .
Thank the good Lord that women are made
to satisfy their men .
Thank the good Lord for Black & Red
and my good buddy Will
Thank the good Lord most of all
for good ol' Bad Eye Bill .

Bad Eye Bill from Maryville
gotta yellow dog named black .
A blonde haired wife called Red
that run around behind his back .
Now Bad Eye Bill and his buddy Will
are known to take a drink or ten .
Will will pick up an old guitar
and Bad Eye Bill will sing .

Thank the good Lord for Rock & Roll .
Thank the good Lord for Gin .
Thank the good Lord that women are made
to satisfy their men .
Thank the good Lord for Black & Red
and my good buddy Will
Thank the good Lord most of all
for good ol' Bad Eye Bill .

Bad Eye Bill got locked in jail
about a week or so ago.
Swore to the jailer & the preacher
that the good Lord had saved his soul .
Bill went home found Black & Red
in bed with his buddy Will .
Shot 'em all and he started singin'
and he's still singin' in jail .

Thank the good Lord for Rock & Roll .
Thank the good Lord for Gin .
Thank the good Lord that women are made
to satisfy their men .
Thank the good Lord for Black & Red
and my late buddy Will
Thank the good Lord most of all
for good ol' Bad Eye Bill .
