    Billy played guitar in a country band
    On the other side of town
    He had a sister and she looked mighty fine
    And I used to call around

    Her name was Mary and her hair was black
    And I lost myself in her
    Her eyes where sad when she looked into mine
    And the colours began to blur

    She said "There's something I've done I can't tell to a soul
    Something that can't be denied
    What my brother and me have laid in the ground
    Is a sin I can't cast aside.

    I can't stay here for another day,
    Ghosts follow me around
    Billy warned me if I said A word
    I'd be dead without a sound

    So let's leave here and start a life
    Where he'll never track us down
    Like Sycamore leaves that blow on the autumn wind
    And get lost in the golden gown".

    Every forsaken town that we passed on the road
    Every bad dream that we left behind
    Saw more miles and dark days for Billy to cross
    As we watched the grey highway unwind

    We bought a place down a dusty road
    The oak trees gave us shade
    Five times leaves turned brown and fell
    And our fears began to fade

    Mary still woke in the middle of the night
    Crying out in fear
    "He's the Devil in the dark, and I can't see his face
    But I can feel him everywhere"

    One blossom bright morning two years ago
    She went into town for the day
    A stranger was seen talking to her
    Now she's gone like a snowfall in May

    Billy plays guitar in a country band
    On the other side of town
    He had a sister and she looked mighty fine
    And I used to call around........
