Billy Jack Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Just out of Monday
I run into a friend
Down the street, down the street
Where I live
Verse 2
Sad things begin
I could feel from within
From the message, from the message
He had to give
Verse 3
About a buddy of mine
He run out of time, his life run out of time
Somebody past noon, shot across the room
And now the man no longer lives
Verse 4
Too bad about him
Too sad about him
Don't get me wrong, the man is gone
But it's a wonder, he lived this long
Verse 5
Up in the city they called him Boss Jack
But down home he was an alley cat
Ah, didn't care nothing about being black
Oh, Billy Jack
Verse 6
There can't be no fun, can't be no fun
To be shot, shot with a hand gun
Your body sprawled out, you without a doubt
Running people out, there on the floor
Verse 7
Sad bloody mess
Shot all up in his chest, shot in his chest
One sided duel, gun and a fool, ah
What a way to go
Verse 8
Up in the city they called him Boss Jack
But down home he was a alley cat
Ah, didn't care nothin' 'bout being Black
Oh, Billy Jack
Verse 9
