Adaptation by Woody Guthrie

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
IX Festival de Canción De Autor «Otoño en Navarrés»

por María Gracia Correa el 25/11/2019

Otoño tras otoño, Navarrés hace un paréntesis en su vida cotidiana para recordar a Joan Baptista Humet. Desde que falleció el cantautor, hace once años, cada final del mes de noviembre el pueblo en el que nació se colma de canciones y música en su memoria. Su recuerdo perdura por encima del tiempo, sus canciones permanecen en el alma de su gente. Vuelve el otoño a Navarrés de nuevo, con un festival que contará con las actuaciones de Sara Reus, Laura Granados, Fede Comín y Gabriela Castillo, y que finalizará con un tributo en el que una veintena de artistas pondrá voz a sus canciones.

Novedad discográfica

por Frank Carlos Nájera el 04/12/2019

El trovador cubano Carlos Varela acaba de lanzar El grito mudo, su primer disco en solitario en 10 años tras No es el fin (Grafitti Music Records 2009), un disco que se acerca a veces estilísticamente a Como los peces, y esencialmente a Monedas al aire, pero que encuentra su propio rumbo.
