Subject: Lyr Req: blues song named Bill. sang by a woman

I'm looking to find out who sings this song. The guy is cheating and through the song she names women that she could have dealt with it if that was their name but it turned out he was cheating with his friend Bill.

When was the song out?

Or, when did you first hear it?

Was it C and W?

Do you recall ANYthing else about it? A phrase, clause, some words?

Could be a song called "My Girl Bill" by Jim Stafford. His big hit was "Spiders & Snakes". He's got religion is works in Branson MO now.

Tell old Bill when he gets home this morning
Tell old Bill when he gets home this evening
Tell pld Bill when he gets home
To leave them downtown women alone
This morning, this evening, so soon.

It must be this one. Lyrics copied from http://www.top40db.net/Lyrics/?SongID=97194

BILL
Jimmy Lewis

All of you ladies out there, turn up your radio.
Girls, I'm about to tell you something you may want to know.
You know things, they're not always what they appear to be.
And I don't want what to happen to you what happened to me.
Listen: There are no words that can describe what I felt inside
When I found out the man I loved, loved another guy.

We were at a party, Ohh, to have a little fun
But when I looked around my, my man was missing
I walked outside, I couldn't believe my eyes
He was in Bill's arms breathin' hard and French kissing

I was ready for Mary, Susan, Helen, and Jane,
When all the time it was Bill who was sleeping with my man.

Bill has been to my house a thousand times.
He and my man would go camping and fishing.
Oh, I tell you, it never crossed my mind.
Bill was a friend and he was God-Uncle to my only son.
Now it looks Uncle Billy wants to be his step-mom.

Now you see, I was ready for Mary. I was ready for Jane.
How do a woman compete with a man for another man?

I asked my man, "Why didn't you tell me that you were gay
When you knew, knew I build my world around you?"
"I knew I had those feelings and I didn't want it to be.
I thought by being with you, girl, I thought it would change."
As tears came to my eyes, he says, "I'm sorry I hurt you so.
I got to pack. Bill is waiting for me and I got to go."

I was ready for Mary. I was ready for Jane,
When all the time it was Bill who was sleeping with my man.

I don't feel ashamed and I don't take the blame.
My man was just a queen, he was a queen that thought he was a king.
He told before he left he said:
"I know you're hurt and, oh, I know you're mad,
But if that's not asking too much,
Could you tell my son I love him and I'm still his dad."

I was ready for Mary, Susan, Helen, and Jane,
When all the time it was Bill who was sleeping with my man.

I was ready for Mary, Susan, Helen, and Jane,
When all the time it was Bill who was sleeping with my man.

Bill used to come over to my house, I used to fix him my food.
I used to loan Bill my money,
All the time he was in there tryin' to get my honey.

[Sung by Peggy Scott-Adams on 3 of her own albums:
"Bill" (Miss Butch CD #2208, 1997),
"Help Yourself" (Miss Butch CD #4003, 1996), and
"16 Hits!" (Miss Butch CD #4026, 2004);
...and 2 various-artists compilations:
