Billy Joel

"The Ballad of Billy The Kid"

 

This is a kick-ass song for piano, but on guitar is sounds quite

good. These are the base chords and such, listen to the song to

get down the little licks.

 

Intro:

It starts off with a cool cowboy horse trot. It's played like this:

 

E---------|

B---------|

G---------|

D---0-2-0-|

A---------|

E-3-------|

 

Pre-Verse:

F F C C F G

 

Verse:

G Em F G Em F C D G Em F C G Am7 D

 

Chorus:

C D Em Bm C C G C D Em Bm C Dsus4 Dadd9 D

 

Bridge/Ending:

In the middle is the Bridge, which is the same as the Ending.

It's played like this:

 

E---------------------|

B---------------------|

G-----0-0---2-0-------|

D-0-2-----2-----2-2-0-|

A---------------------|

E---------------------|

 

And ended like this:

E---------------------|

B---------------------|

G---------------------|

D---------------2-0---|

A---0-3-3-3-0-------3-|

E-3-----------3-------|

 

 

So the order is:

 

I V PV V PV V PV C V PV B PV V PV C V PV E

 

I - Intro

PV - Pre-Verse

V - Verse

C - Chorus

B - Bridge

E - Ending

 

 

And thats it! Listen to the song to get the timings and the strum

pattern and the tempos right, because those all change quite a few

times. They wont let me post the lyrics, but they are rather simple

to get. Rock on.
