INTRO:(Slow)  
D#                           G#       D#
The night was clear, and the moon was yellow..
        A#7                  D#
And the leaves came tumblin' down... 

#1.(fast, rock.)
D#                    D#7
I was standin' on the corner,
       G#
When I heard my bull dog bark.
       D#
He was barkin' at the two men
         A#7             D#  A#7
Who were gamblin' in the dark.
               D#      D#7
It was Stagger Lee and Billy,
    G#7
Two men who gambled late.
        D#
Stagger lee threw a seven,
      A#7                 D#   A#7
Billy swore that he threw eight.

#2.
D#
Stagger Lee, said Billy,
        G#
I can't let you go with that.
         D#
You have won all my money,
       A#7               D# A#7
And my brand-new Stetson hat.
        D#
Stagger Lee went home,
       G#
And he got his forty-four.
             D#
He said, I'm goin' to the barroom
        A#7             D#
Just to pay that debt I owe.
 A#7
(Go, Stagger Lee.)


(INTERLUDE:SAX:) D# G# D# A# D# A#

#3.
D#
Stagger Lee went to the barroom,
       G#
And he stood across the barroom door.
         D#                  A#7         D# A#7
He said, Nobody move, and he pulled his .44.
        D#
Stagger Lee, cried Billy,
    G#
Oh, please don't take my life!
         D#
I've got three little children,
      A#7         D#  A#7
And a very sickly wife.

#4.
        D#
Stagger Lee shot Billy.
       G#
Oh, he shot that poor boy so bad..
         D#
That the bullet went through Billy
    A#7                   D#
And broke the bartender's glass.
 A#7
(Look out now.)

CFF:
D#               D#7              G#7
Go, Stagger Lee..go, Stagger Lee..go, Stagger Lee..
D#               A#7 D#  A#7
Go, Stagger Lee..go, go.......Fade.
