The 'Billy' songs from 'Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid'

The Goldberg Variations of the Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett saga, all from the 1973 soundtrack album to Sam Peckinpah's "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid."


Bob sets grim tone for
Billy the Kid’s elegy
And for Pat Garrett’s.

Billy 1

Bob tells the story
Of Pat Garrett and Billy,
Once friends, now fighting

Billy 4

He's Billy the Kid,
A saint and a sinner, now
Dying with the West

Billy 7

Bob tells his sad tale
Of Billy and Pat, his friend.
They killed each other.
