Song Description

Girl/Boy meets Boy/Girl falls in love and dissapears

Story Behind the Song

My Friend moved away in the eighties to find a better life due to bigotry.

Lyrics

Billy

She/He fell in love with a film star on the silver screen
Said she/He loved him she/He was only seventeen
Gonna go to Hollywood become a star
Cruise down the boulevard in a brand new car

No Use Knocking On Billy's Door today
Billy has gone far far away

Arrived In Hollywood on a greyhound bus
Never seen so many people, what a rush
So Many Faces & So Many Creeds
Everybody looking for there own special needs
Grabbed her/His bags and headed towards town
Got shacked up in a one up one down
Make her/His bed out of silk and lace
Stepped outside to check out the Place

La la la la, La la la la la la la .
La la la la ,La la la la la la la

No Use Knocking On Billy's Door
Billy don't live around here anymore

La la la la, La la la la la la la .
La la la la ,La la la la la la la

Got a job in a downtown bar
Serving Whiskey and one doller cigars
Gave her/His heart to a guitar man
And all the colored girls began to sing

La la la la, La la la la la la la .
La la la la ,La la la la la la la

No use asking Billy out to play
Billy has gone far far away

La la la la, La la la la la la la .
La la la la ,La la la la la la la
La la la la, La la la la la la la .
La la la la ,La la la la la la la
