Intro    
 Billy was a drover 
He lived out on the Three Chain Road 
Fell in love with Mary and they married 
She made his shack a home 
He drove a mob to Queensland 
And it hurt to have to leave her on her own 
She promised she'd be waiting  
When he brought the cattle home 
There's a lonesome wind blowin down the Three Chain Road tonight 
It's sending out a warning as she moans 
Billy don't go riding down the Three Chain Road tonight 
The wind is crying Billy please don't go 
Billy came home early 
He wasen't due for many days 
He walked into the cabin found his Mary 
In a strangers arms she lay 
In the blindness of his anger  
The fatal shots rang out from Billy's gun 
In that smokey silence he knew 
And he wept for what he'd done 
There's a lonesome wind blowin down the Three Chain Road tonight 
It's sending out a warning as she moans 
Billy don't go riding down the Three Chain Road tonight 
The wind is crying Billy please don't go 
Billy walked out slowly 
He new what must be done 
Somewhere in the darkness a shot rang out 
Billy's time had come 
They say his spirits out there 
You can feel it every time the cold wind blows 
It's warning all the strangers who come by the Three Chain Road 
Chorus 
There's a lonesome wind blowin down the Three Chain Road tonight 
It's sending out a warning as she moans 
Billy don't go riding down the Three Chain Road tonight 
There's a lonesome wind blowin down the Three Chain Road tonight 
It's sending out a warning as she moans 
Billy don't go riding down the Three Chain Road tonight 
The wind is crying Billy please don't go
