Oh, I met my True Love, and I want you to know,
Down in Villa Nueva (Vee a noo AVE uh) in New Mexico.
She was born on the Pecos, where cool waters run
And her Pa named her Billie, expectin’ a son.
Pecos Billie’s the law in this sun-covered land.
Pecos Billie’s the lady now wearin’ my brand.
I was sentenced to make her my unblushing bride;
Well, I never could run and I sure wouldn’t hide!
Yes, out west of the Pecos, true love is a tort,
So I threw myself onto her merciful court.
We took vows in a mission that sits high above
And today I’m a lifer, for Billie, My Love!
‘Though she carried no weapon, she came to no harm.
Billie disarmed the toughest with beauty and charm.
On the banks of the Pecos her law was the best
And my poor heart she quickly placed under arrest.
Well, my heart soon surrendered, with nary a fight,
On the banks of the Pecos, one warm summer night.
She would never use handcuffs; but, still, I’m not free
‘Cause I can’t break these heartcuffs that she placed on me!
