Lyrics

Way out in Reno, Nevada
Where (?) blooms and fades
A great Philadelphia lawyer
Was in love with a Hollywood maid

Come love, and we will wander
Out where the lights are bright
I'll win you a divorce from you husband
And we can get married tonight

Lyrics continue below...

Now Bill, was a gun token cowboy
Ten notches where carved on his gun
And all the boys around Reno
Left wild Bill's maiden alone

One night when he was returning
From riding the range in the cold
He dreamed of his Hollywood sweetheart
Her love was as lasting as gold

As he drew near her window
A shadow he saw on the shade
Was the great Philadelphia lawyer
Making love to his Hollywood maid

The night was as still as the desert
The moon was bright overhead
Bill listened awhile to the lawyer
He could heart every word that he said

Your hands are so pretty and lovely
Your form, so rare and (?)
Come, go with me to the city
And leave this wild cowboy behind

Now back in old Pennsylvania
Among those beautiful towns
There's one less Philadelphia lawyer
In old Philadelphia tonight

There's one less Philadelphia lawyer
In old Philadelphia tonight
