That's All

Lyrics: Ronnie Penque
Music: Ronnie Penque

A new New Riders song, introduced in 2010.

Billy Joe Cotton and Doctor Martin Hale
Well long term cellmates in the county jail
I agreed to be the trigger man
How could I refuse when I heard the plan

Louie the Hat was a dirty rotten crook
When it came to crime, you know he wrote the book
Cotton said, fellas, the better get it clear
It's well understood the Hat gets his share

That's all, that's all
That's all behind me
That's all, that's all
That's all behind me now

Never been a safe that the Doc couldn't crack
The guard walked in, Billy shot him in the back
I looked out the window, the coast was clear
I thought I saw a man in a hat out there

Doc said "Billy, better use restraint"
Billy said "Doc, I got no complaint"
Give me back my gun 'cause I'm going on my own
Sure was fun, but a loan's a loan

That's all, that's all
That's all behind me
That's all, that's all
That's all behind me now

We busted outside, the Doc went down
I thought I heard a shot, so I took a look around
With the money in a sack, I slipped into a door
Three months later I dug it up from the floor

No one knows what happened back then
No one ever saw Billy Joe Cotton again
Now you want to know, was it Louie the Hat
Well I never answer questions like that

That's all, that's all
That's all behind me
That's all, that's all
That's all behind me now

That's all, that's all
That's all behind me
That's all, that's all
That's all behind me now
Behind me
Behind me
Behind me
