Could be on a rainy morning
Could be on a rainy night
Oh, stagger lee and billy delyons
Had a great big fight

Cho: talkin bout that bad man, bad man
Cruel old stagger lee

"stagger lee", said billy,
Man you know i can't go with that
I done worn all your money
And your great big stetson hat

"stagger lee", said billy,
Please don't take my life
I got two lovely children
And a very lovely wife

What do i care about your two little babes
Or your darling life
You done wore my stetson hat,
I'm bound to take your life

Well stagger lee shot billy
Shot that boy so bad
That the bullet went through billy
And broke the bartenders looking glass

If you ever down in louisiana
Go in to the lyons club
Every foot you be steppin’ in
Billy did lie in blood

Could be on a rainy morning
Could be on a rainy night
Oh, stagger lee and billy delyons
Had a great big fight
