Me and Billy the Kid

Me and Billy the Kid

It’s a single line from a Joe Ely song. His stage banter, or someplace in his online presence, a comment about seeing the Billy The Kid museum, and being totally un–impressed, so, like many of us, he wrote his own version.

It’s that hard country, down the New Mexico line.

I graduated from High School in Roswell, NM — that’s why I know “That hard country, down the New Mexico line.” Done time, there.

“He rode the hard country down the New Mexico Line”
