Wilson Pickett - Stagger Lee Lyrics

  • The night was clear and the moon was yellow
  • And the leaves came tumbling down
  • I was standing on the corner when I heard my bulldog 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 seven, Billy swore that he threw eight
  • Stagger Lee told Billy, "I can't let you go with that"
  • "You have won all my money and my brand new stetson hat"
  • Stagger Lee started off goin' down that railroad track
  • He said "I can't get you Billy but don't be here when I come back"
  • Stagger Lee went home and he got his forty-four
  • Said "I'm goin' to the barroom just to pay that debt I owe"
  • Stagger Lee went to the barroom and he stood across the barroom door
  • He said "Nobody move" and he pulled his forty-four
  • Stagger Lee shot Billy, oh he shot that poor boy so bad
  • Till the bullet came through Billy and it broke the bartender's glass
