HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS


Stagger Lee Lyrics

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 barroom
"Just to pay that debt I owe."

(Bridge)
Go, Stagger Lee

Stagger Lee went to the barroom
And he strolled across the barroom 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!
(To fade)
