Adaptation by Woody Guthrie

Aparece en la discografía de

Stackolee


Stackolee was a bad man, everybody knows
Spent a hundred dollars for just one suit of clothes
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee

Stackolee loaded cotton, weighed five hundred pounds
Carried along a Gatling gun, that drug him to the ground
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee

It was in a hustling b-joint where the Mississippi run
Stackolee killed Billy de Lyons with a smoking forty-one
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee

The high sheriff asked the deputy, "How can it be
You can arrest everybody, but the mean old Stackolee?
He's a bad man, that mean old Stackolee."

And the deputy told the new sheriff, "Double up my fee,
And I'll go get that outlaw, by the name of Stackolee
'Cause he's a bad man, that mean old Stackolee."

Gentlemen of the jury, what do you think about that?
Stackolee killed Billy de Lyons about a five dollar Stetson hat
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee

Billy was in the card house and kneeling on the floor
Stackolee pulled the trigger of his red-hot forty-four
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee

Billy said to Stackolee, "Please don't take my life,
I've got three little babes and a darling loving wife
You're a bad man, your name is Stackolee"

"What do I care about your two little babes, your darling loving wife?
You done stole my brand new hat and I'm bound to take your life
'Cause you're a bad man, and my name is Stackolee"

Billy died in the sawdust, with his head upon the rail
Deputy took old Stackolee and he marched him off to jail
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee

The judge said, "Mr. Stackolee, Mr. Stackolee
I'm gonna hang your body up and set your spirit free
'Cause you're a bad man, your name is Stackolee"

Stackolee on his gallows, his head way up high
Twelve o'clock we killed him, was all glad to see him die
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee
He was a bad man, that mean old Stackolee

HOY DESTACAMOS
Nuevo cancionero y discografía

el 07/02/2018

Coincidiendo con el trigésimo aniversario de la publicación de su último disco y como complemento al homenaje que este 2018 le ofrece el Festival BarnaSants, CANCIONEROS publica el cancionero y la discografía de Ramon Muntaner. Con ello queremos además reivindicar su obra y rescatar del olvido unas canciones que siguen sonando modernas basadas en unos textos que —algunos de ellos lamentablemente—, siguen manteniendo toda su vigencia.

HOY EN PORTADA
Novedad editorial

por María Gracia Correa el 12/02/2018

La Tertulia de Granada se convirtió una vez más en referente de la canción de autor y de la poesía de Andalucía, el 26 de enero de 2018, con la presentación de En la raíz del silencio, un libro imprescindible que el profesor y musicólogo Fernando González Lucini ha construido a partir de la recuperación de poemas y dibujos inéditos de Antonio Mata, miembro fundador de Manifiesto Canción del Sur, fallecido en 2014, autor primordial en la historia de la canción de autor andaluza.
