Way out in Reno, Nevada,
Where romances bloom and fade,
A great Philadelphia lawyer,
In love with a Hollywood maid.
"Come, love, and we will wander,
"Down where the lights are so bright.
"I'll win you a divorce from your husband,
"And we can get married tonight."
Wild Bill was a gun-totin' cowboy.
Ten notches were carved on his gun.
And all of the boys around Reno,
Left Wild Bill's darlin’ alone.
One night when Bill was returning,
From ridin' the range in the cold,
He dreamed of his Hollywood sweetheart,
Her love was as lasting as gold.
As Bill drew near to the window,
Two shadows he saw on the shade;
'Twas the great Philadelphia lawyer,
Makin' love to Bill's Hollywood maid.
The night was as still as the desert,
The moon shinin’ bright overhead.
Bill listened a while at the window.
He could hear ev'ry word that was said:
"Your hands are so pretty and lovely,
"Your form is so rare and divine.
"Come go with me to the city
"And leave this wild cowboy behind."
Now back in old Pennsylvania,
Among those beautiful pines,
There's one less Philadelphia lawyer,
In old Philadelphia tonight.
