Madame DeLil, as the ladies
Went and fell in love with Diabolical Bill.
She temporarily lost her head,
Side-tracked by this dude who was takin' her bread.
She said, "I don't have to apologize,
I love my Billy so damn your eyes".
She didn't mind if you told her lies,
If the lies were the appropriate kind.
She'd say, "Ain't nobody gonna railroad me,
Don't try and tell me Billy don't love me".
Madame DeLil, she was doin'
'Til one of her ladies of the night
Told her that Bill had his hand in the till.
She was romantically, financially going downhill.
"I don't have to apologize.
He's diabolical, so damn his eyes.
I've got a plan to fix that man.
I'll have the last word with this 45.
Ain't nobody gonna railroad me.
Don't try to tell a lady she ain't free.
Oh, Madame DeLil loved Diabolical
She wanted to scare a man she couldn't quite kill.
So one night he was sleepin' and he closed his eyes,
So 'Lil put blanks in his big 45.
The next day when a big Swede insulted his pride,
He shot him down and said "Damn your eyes".
He stole a horse and he left that town.
He didn't know he never shot that man down.
And nobody railroads Madame DeLil,
The joke was on Diabolical Bill.
So come on children, gather
Did I ever tell you 'bout the time I shot that big Swede down?
It was in a saloon back in 1889,
I guess that was way back 'fore your time.
