Stagger Lee

The night was clear, and the moon was yellow



And the leaves came tumblin' down. . .







I was standin' on the corner



When I heard my bull dog bark.



He was barkin' at the two men



Who were gamblin' in the dark.







It was Stagger Lee and Billy,



Two men who gambled late.



Stagger lee threw a seven,



Billy swore that he threw eight.







"Stagger Lee," said Billy,



"I can't let you go with that.



"You have won all my money,



"And my brand-new Stetson hat."







Stagger Lee went home



And he got his .44.



He said, "I'm goin' to the ballroom



"Just to pay that debt I owe."







(bridge)



Go, Stagger Lee







Stagger Lee went to the ballroom



And he strolled across the ballroom floor.



He said "You did me wrong, Billy."



And he pulled his .44.







"Stagger Lee," said Billy,



"Oh, please don't take my life!



"I've got three hungry children,



"And a very sickly wife."







Stagger Lee shot Billy



Oh, he shot that poor boy so hard



That a bullet went through Billy



And broke the bartender's bar.







Go, Stagger Lee, go, Stagger Lee!



Go, Stagger Lee, go, Stagger Lee!
