Hello again, here is a link to the initial question. Glad you found the song!

http://www.justanswer.com/questions/2y9rd-looking-for-a-song-popular-in-the-late-50s-called-simply-billy

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It was called Billy, sung by XXXXX XXXXXnden and I need to know where I can get a copy of the sheet music. Thanks.
Expert:  Tyler replied 7 years ago.
I will start looking for a place to find the sheet music, if you would like to go back to the first question you opened we can work off of that so you don't have to pay for two separate questions about the same thing. I'll be back with you in just a moment!

I am looking for the sheet music of Billy, sung by XXXXX XXXXXnden for a 50th anniversary party. Thanks.

Hi there, I posted this on the first question but not sure if you received it, so here it is on this question:

 

I have looked everywhere and can't find any sheet music for that song, let along any sheet music for any of XXXXX XXXXXnden's music. I guess I'm not way too surprised about that as sheet music is normally printed for popular tunes while they are popular and most of the sheet music still printed today from the 50's is music that has remained popular since it initially came out. If it would be helpful, I can work out the chord changes for this music and send you that so it could be played on piano or guitar by someone who can read chords. The chords would appear above the lyrics. Would that work?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
That would be wonderful. I would be ever so grateful. Thanks.
Expert:  Tyler replied 7 years ago.
Great, I will get on that and have it back to you in about 10-15 minutes!
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I'll be right here waiting. Thanks.

Ok, here ya go! I hope this works out for you. Please let me know if I can clarify anything in here. There are some notes about chord spellings at the very bottom. Also, I've placed the chords exactly where they change over the lyrics, so when you see a line that doesn't have a chord at the beginning that means there should either be silence, or a continuation of the previous chord (you'll hear where in the recording). Best of luck, I'm sure this song will mean a lot to the long time happy couple!!

Notes about chords:

E7/B means it is an E seventh chord with the root of the chord being B, aka second inversion.

Amaj7 means the seventh of the chord is major instead of minor, so this chord would be spelled A-C#-E-G#
