JIMMY BARNES lyrics - Soul Deep

Stagger Lee

Original and similar 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 was gamblin' in the dark It was stagger lee and billy, they were two men gambling Stagger lee threw a seven, billy swore that he threw an 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 went home and he got his forty-four Said I’m goin' to the barroom got to pay the debt I owe Stagger lee went to the barroom and he stood across the barroom door He said nobody move and he pulled that forty-four Stagger lee heard billy say please don’t take my life I’ve got three hungry children and a very happy wife Stagger lee shot billy, well he shot that boy so bad That the bullet went though billy and it broke the bartender’s glass That’s got to teach you a lesson some how

Stagger Lee

Nick Cave "Murder Ballads"
It was back in '32 when times were hard He had a Colt .45 and a deck of cards Stagger Lee He wore rat-drawn shoes and an old stetson hat Had a '28 Ford, had payments on that Stagger Lee His woman threw him out in the ice and snow And told him, 'Never ever come back no more' Stagger Lee So he walked through the rain and he walked through the mud Till he came to a place called The Bucket Of Blood Stagger Lee He said 'Mr Motherfucker, you know who I am' The barkeeper said, 'No, and I don't give a good goddamn' To Stagger Lee He said, 'Well bartender, it's plain to see I'm that bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee' Mr. Stagger Lee Barkeep said, 'Yeah, I've heard your name down the way And I kick motherfucking asses like you every day' Mr Stagger Lee Well those were the last words that the barkeep said 'Cause Stag put four holes in his motherfucking head Just then in came a broad called Nellie Brown Was known to make more money than any bitch in town She struts across the bar, hitching up her skirt Over to Stagger Lee, she starts to flirt With Stagger Lee She saw the barkeep, said, 'O God, he can't be dead!' Stag said, 'Well, just count the holes in the motherfucker's head' She said, 'You ain't look like you scored in quite a time. Why not come to my pad It won't cost you a dime' Mr. Stagger Lee 'But there's something I have to say before you begin You'll have to be gone before my man Billy Dilly comes in, Mr. Stagger Lee' 'I'll stay here till Billy comes in, till time comes to pass And furthermore I'll fuck Billy in his motherfucking ass' Said Stagger Lee 'I'm a bad motherfucker, don't you know And I'll crawl over fifty good pussies just to get one fat boy's asshole' Said Stagger Lee Just then Billy Dilly rolls in and he says, 'You must be That bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee' Stagger Lee 'Yeah, I'm Stagger Lee and you better get down on your knees And suck my dick, because If you don't you're gonna be dead' Said Stagger Lee Billy dropped down and slobbered on his head And Stag filled him full of lead Oh yeah.

Stagger Lee met Billy and they go down to gambling Stagger Lee throwed seven Billy said that he throwed eight So Billy said, hey Stagger!

Prison Trilogy (Billy Rose)

JOAN BAEZ "Come From The Shadows"
Billy Rose was a low rider, Billy Rose was a night fighter Billy knew trouble like the sound of his own name Busted on a drunken charge driving someone else's car The local midnight sheriffs claim to fame In an Arizona jail there are some who tell the tale how Billy fought the sergeant for some milk that he demanded Knowing they'd remain the boss, knowing he would pay the cost They saw he was severely repremanded In the blackest cell on A Block He hanged himself at dawn With a note stuck to the bunk head Don't mess with me, just take me home Come lay, help us lay Young Billy down Luna was a Mexican the law called an alien For coming across the border with a baby and a wife Though the clothes upon his back were wet still he thought That he could get some money and things to start a life It hadn't been to very long when it seemed like everything went wrong They didn't even have the time to find themselves a home This foreigner, a brown-skin male thrown into a Texas jail It left the wife and baby quite alone He eased the pain inside him With a needle in his arm But the dope just crucified him He died to no one's great alarm Come lay, help us lay young Luna down Were gonna raze, raze the prisons to the ground Kilowatt was an aging con of 65 who stood a chance to stay alive And leave the joint and walk the streets again As the time he was to leave drew near he suffered all the joy and fear Of leaving 35 years in the pen And on the day of his release he was approached by the police Who took him to te warden walking slowly by his side The warden said You won't remain here but it seems a state retainer claims another 10 years of your life He stepped out in the Texas sunlight The cops all stood around Old Kilowatt ran 50 yards Then threw himself on the ground They may as well just laid the old man down And we're gonna raze, raze the prisons to the ground Help us raze the prisons to the ground
