Song Author Melvin Schmidt Performer: Jim Ed og The Browns Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Where is my Billy my [G]Billy McCoy
[D7]Where is the boy of my [G]dreams
[C]Singing this song as the [G]boat rolls along
Heading for [D7]ole New Or[G]leans u[Em]huh   
[G]Heading for [D7]ole New Or[G]leans

I once had a lover named [C]Billy Mc[G]Coy  
He lived by the [A7]river's big [D7]bend   
One [G]warm summer day Billy [C]wandered a[G]way  
He's gone but our [D7]love didn't [G]end  

They say he went down where the [C]riverboats [G]dock
With nary a [A7]cent in his [D7]jeans
A [G]barefooted lad who could [C]sing round the [G]clock
And wanted to [D7]see New Or[G]leans

[C]Where is my Billy my [G]Billy McCoy
[D7]Where is the boy of my [G]dreams
[C]Singing this song as the [G]boat rolls along
Heading for [D7]ole New Or[G]leans u[Em]huh   
[G]Heading for [D7]ole New Or[G]leans

He took his guitar and he [C]sang very [G]well
A riverboat [A7]crew heard him [D7]there
They [G]took him aboard on the [C]Big Dixie [G]Bell
To sing for his [D7]dinner and [G]fare

I pray every night that he [C]misses me [G]so  
And after he [A7]sees New Or[D7]leans
He'll [G]sing his way home for he [C]loves me I [G]know
My barefooted [D7]boy in blue [G]jeans

[C]Where is my Billy my [G]Billy McCoy
[D7]Where is the boy of my [G]dreams
[C]Singing this song as the [G]boat rolls along
Heading for [D7]ole New Or[G]leans u[Em]huh   
[G]Heading for [D7]ole New Or[G]leans

Where is my Billy my Billy McCoy
Where is the boy of my dreams
Singing this song as the boat rolls along
Heading for ole New Orleans uhuh
Heading for ole New Orleans

I once had a lover named Billy McCoy
He lived by the river's big bend
One warm summer day Billy wandered away
He's gone but our love didn't end

They say he went down where the riverboats dock
With nary a cent in his jeans
A barefooted lad who could sing round the clock
And wanted to see New Orleans

Where is my Billy my Billy McCoy
Where is the boy of my dreams
Singing this song as the boat rolls along
Heading for ole New Orleans uhuh
Heading for ole New Orleans

He took his guitar and he sang very well
A riverboat crew heard him there
They took him aboard on the Big Dixie Bell
To sing for his dinner and fare

I pray every night that he misses me so
And after he sees New Orleans
He'll sing his way home for he loves me I know
My barefooted boy in blue jeans

Where is my Billy my Billy McCoy
Where is the boy of my dreams
Singing this song as the boat rolls along
Heading for ole New Orleans uhuh
Heading for ole New Orleans
