Well done and catchy melody. Makes me think of Johnny Cash. Good choice of instruments and the guitar work is awesome!
Very good use of lyrics and story telling.

He was born under the fire of a west Texas sky
With a Colt clinched in his left hand and a Bowie in his right
He could shoot before He talked and he could ride before he walked
That kid could ride..ride ride ride...Ride Billy ride...Ride Billy ride
Never one for conversation so He just didn't speak
He didn't finish school, you might say he reached his peak
The day he robbed his first bank on a dare just a prank
It was time to ride...Ride Billy ride

He never stole from little babies
Or lingered with the ladies....He'd just ride
Some said that boy is crazy
Or maybe He's just lazy
But they could not catch Billy
Cause he could ride...Ride Billy ride

He was the devil's desperado from the age of seventeen
Yeah running through the desert tends to make a man turn mean
With the sky his only cover and Lady Luck his only lover
He had to ride...ride ride ride, Ride Billy ride, Ride Billy ride
In April of eighty-one the Kidd ran down his last train
By then all of the banks and Wells Fargo knew the game
He should have never turned his back when he dropped that money sack
That's where he died....Young Billy died

Some say that it was greed
But he never took more than he'd need...And then He'd ride
Some said that that boy is crazy
Or maybe he's jsut lazy
But they could not catch Billy
Cause he could ride...Ride Billy ride

There's a pretty good chance that he rode through your town
Oh they probly' tried to hang him there but he'll still come around
So when the hot sun goes down put your ear to the ground
You can hear him ride....Yeah he still rides....Ride Billy ride
