Billy left home one morning,
He walked right out of the door,
He said goodbye to his former life
And he never came back no more.
Oh Billy... there's anger in your heart.
Oh Billy... there's madness in your eyes.

He took his favourite handgun,
With his rifle he felt free.
He cleaned them all the night before,
He was armed as he could be.

Oh Billy... there's anger in your heart.
Oh Billy... there's madness in your eyes.

'Cos it's a sad world when there's no-one
Who can reach out to the source of your pain.
Yes, it's a sad world, such a sad, sad world
When only peace comes at the end of a gun.
Whoa... oh.

Before he pulled the trigger he knelt as if to pray
And at the top of the church he will never be found
Since he took his life that day.

Oh Billy... there's anger in your heart.
Oh Billy... there's madness in your eyes.

'Cos it's a sad world when there's no-one
Who can reach out to the source of your pain.
Yes, it's a sad world, such a sad, sad world
When only peace comes at the end of a gun.

Yes, it's a sad world when there's no-one
Who can hold you when you just need to cry
And it's a sad, sad world when there's no-one
Who would care if you live or you die
And it's a sad world, such a sad world.
It's a sad world.
