Milly's Cafe Lyrics

They put up a sign for the very last time
At Milly's Cafe
They loaded their stuff into the car
And they drove away
Milly looked back for one last time
And when she turned around, she was crying
Billy just listened to the songs the radio played
They drove all the way from Fort Worth to Amarillo
When Milly woke up she had makeup all over her pillow
Billy had stopped at Easy Pawn
And bought them up a couple of guns
Tomorrow, he said, was gonna be a brand new day
Milly and Billy tore up the entire West
They started holding up liquor stores and then they
turned to banks
And it wasn't very long, you know
Their picture was on the post office wall
And it seemed that the whole world was looking for them
And the roads just get rougher
Out in West Texas
The cowboys are tougher
And the young girls are restless
And the winds take the towns
And there ain't any signs
But there's always a hill to climb
On the West Texas skyline
Milly was raised a Christian in Abilene
Her father was a preacher in the biggest church you
ever did see
When word came down about Milly and Billy
He made a call up to New York City
He said for some boys to come down and set things
straight
He met Milly in El Paso
Underneath a tree in the parking lot of the motel
And the next day when Billy went in the bank
She started the car and she drove away
When Billy came out, he never had a chance
And the roads just get rougher
Out in West Texas
The cowboys are rougher
And the young girls are restless
And the winds take the towns
And there ain't any signs
But there's always a hill to climb
On the West Texas skyline
Put up the sign one more time
At Milly's cafe
They loaded the stuff out of the car and into the
doorway
Milly looked back the one last time
And when she turned around she was crying
Her daddy just got in his car and he drove away
And the roads just get rougher
Out in West Texas
Cowboys are tougher
But the young girls are restless
And the winds takes the town
And there ain't any signs
There's always a hill to climb
On the West Texas skyline
There's always a hill to climb
On the West Texas skyline
