Backward Bill

Verse 1:

Backward Bill, Backward Bill,

He lives way up on Backward Hill,

Which is really a hole in the sandy ground

(But that’s a hill turned upside down).

Listen to verse 1 read slowly or more quickly.

Verse 2:

Backward Bill’s got a backward shack

With a big front porch that’s built out back.

You walk through the window and look out the door

And the cellar is up on the very top floor.

Listen to verse 2 read slowly or more quickly.

Verse 3:

Backward Bill he rides like the wind

Don’t know where he’s going but sees where he’s been.

His spurs they go “neigh” and his horse it goes “clang,”

And his six-gun goes “gnab,” it never goes “bang.”

Listen to verse 3 read slowly or more quickly.

Verse 4:

Backward Bill’s got a backward pup,

They eat their supper when the sun comes up,

And he’s got a wife named Backward Lil,

“She’s my own true hate,” says Backward Bill.

Listen to verse 4 read slowly or more quickly.

Verse 5:

Backward Bill wears his hat on his toes

And puts on his underwear over his clothes.

And come every payday he pays his boss,

And rides off a-smiling’ a-carryin’ his hoss.

Listen to verse 5 read slowly or more quickly.
