Philadelphia Lawyer Lyrics
Way out in Reno Nevada where the romances bloom and they fade

Was a great Philadelphia lawyer was in love with a Hollywood maid

Come love and we will wander down where the lights are so bright

I'll win you the divorce from your husband and we can get married tonight

Now Bill was a guntotin' cowboy with ten notches carved on his gun

And all the boys around Reno left Wild Bill's darlin' alone

One night when Bill was returning from ridin' the range in the cold

He thought of his Hollywood darlin' with her love as lasting as gold

[ dobro ]

As Bill drew near to her window two shadows he saw on the shade

Twas the great Philadelphia lawyer making love to his Hollywood maid

The night was as still as the desert and the moon hanging high overhead

Bill listened awhile in her window he could hear every word that they said

Your face is so pretty and lovelyandyour form so rare and divine

Come and go with me to Philadelphia and leave this wild cowboy behind

Well tonight back in old Pennsylvania among the beautiful pines

There's one less Philadelphia lawyer in old Philadelphia tonight
