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 went home And he got his forty-four Said, I'm goin' to the barroom Just to pay that debt I owe Go Stagger Lee [Instrumental Interlude] 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, cried Billy Oh, please don't take my life I've three little children And a very sickly wife 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
