Stack - A - Lee Lyrics

Hawlin Alley on a dark and drizzly night
Billy Lyons and Stack a Lee had one terrible fight
All about that John.B. Stetson Hat

Stack a Lee walked to the bar-room and he called for a glass of beer
Turned around to Billy Lyons, said, "What are you doin' here?"
"Waitin' for a train to please bring my woman home"

"Stack a Lee, oh Stack a Lee, please don't take my life
Got three little children and a weepin', lovin' wife
You're a bad man, bad man Stack a Lee"

"God bless your children and I'll take care of your wife
You stole my John.B., now I'm bound to take your life"
All about that John.B. Stetson Hat

Stack a Lee turned to Billy Lyons and he shot him right through the head
Only takin' one shot to kill Billy Lyons dead
All about that John.B. Stetson Hat

Sent for the doctor, well the doctor he did come
Just pointed out, Stack a Lee, said, "Now what have you done?
You're a bad man, bad man Stack a Lee"

Six big horses and a rubber-tired hack
Taking him to the cemetery but they failed to bring him back
All about that John.B. Stetson Hat

Hawlin Alley, thought I heard the bulldog bark
Must have been old Stack a Lee stumblin' in the dark
He's a bad man, gonna land him right back in jail

High police walked on to Stack a Lee, he was lyin' fast asleep
High police gets Stack a Lee and he jumped forty feet
He's a bad man, gonna land him right back in jail

Well, they got old Stack a Lee and they led him right back in jail
Couldn't get a man around to go Stack a Lee's bail
All about that John.B. Stetson Hat

Stack a Lee turned to the jailer, he said, "Jailer, I can't sleep
'Round my bedside Billy Lyons begin to creep"
All about that John.B. Stetson Hat
