Stagger Lee:Lloyd Price.
#7 in UK and #1 USA in 1959.
(Song is alleged to be based on a true story.)

INTRO:(Slow)  (Capo 1st fret.)
C                            F        C
The night was clear, and the moon was yellow..
        G7                   C
And the leaves came tumblin' down... 

#1.(fast, rock.)
C                     C7
I was standin' on the corner,
       F
When I heard my bull dog bark.
       C
He was barkin' at the two men
         G7              C   G7
Who were gamblin' in the dark.
               C       C7
It was Stagger Lee and Billy,
    F7
Two men who gambled late.
        C
Stagger lee threw a seven,
      G7                  C    G7
Billy swore that he threw eight.

#2.
C
Stagger Lee, said Billy,
        F
I can't let you go with that.
         C
You have won all my money,
       G7                C  G7
And my brand-new Stetson hat.
        C
Stagger Lee went home,
       F
And he got his forty-four.
             C
He said, I'm goin' to the barroom
        G7              C
Just to pay that debt I owe.
 G7
(Go, Stagger Lee.)

#3.
C
Stagger Lee went to the barroom,
       F
And he stood across the barroom door.
         C                   G7          C  G7
He said, Nobody move, and he pulled his .44.
        C
Stagger Lee, cried Billy,
    F
Oh, please don't take my life!
         C
I've got three little children,
      G7          C   G7
And a very sickly wife.

#4.
        C
Stagger Lee shot Billy.
       F
Oh, he shot that poor boy so bad..
         C
That the bullet went through Billy
    G7                    C  
And broke the bartender's glass.
 G7
(Look out now.)

ADD:
C                C7               F7
Go, Stagger Lee..go, Stagger Lee..go, Stagger Lee..
                 C   G7 C
Go, Stagger Lee..go, go...Fade.
