Stagger Lee
Lloyd Price Lyrics


The night was clear
And the moon was yellow
And the leaves came tumbling down

I was standing on the corner
When I heard my bulldog bark
He was barkin' at the two men who were gamblin'
In the dark

It was Stagger Lee and Billy
Two men who gambled late
Stagger Lee threw seven
Billy swore that he threw eight
Stagger Lee (oh Stagger Lee) told Billy, (oh Stagger Lee)
I can't (oh Stagger Lee) let you go with that (oh Stagger Lee)
You have won all (oh Stagger Lee) my money and my brand new (oh Stagger Lee)
(oh Stagger Lee) Stetson hat (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee)

Stagger Lee (oh Stagger Lee) went home (oh Stagger Lee)
And he got his forty-four (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee)
Said, I'm goin' to (oh Stagger Lee) the barroom just to pay that (oh Stagger Lee)
Debt I owe (oh Stagger Lee)

Stagger Lee went to the barroom
And he stood across the barroom door
He said, nobody move and he pulled his
Forty-four, Ooh

Stagger Lee, (oh Stagger Lee) cried Billy (oh Stagger Lee)
Oh, please (oh Stagger Lee) don't take my life (oh Stagger Lee)
I've got three little (oh Stagger Lee) children and a very (oh Stagger Lee)
Sickly wife (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee)

Stagger Lee (oh Stagger Lee) shot Billy (oh Stagger Lee)
Oh, he shot (oh Stagger Lee) that poor boy so bad (oh Stagger Lee)
'Till the bullet (oh Stagger Lee) came through Billy (oh Stagger Lee)and it broke the bar (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee)
Tender's glass (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee) (oh Stagger Lee)

the night was clear
and the moon was yellow
and the leaves come tumbling down
i was standing on the corner
when i heard my bulldog bark
he was barking at the two men
who were gambling in the dark
it was stagger lee and billy
two men who gambled late
stagger lee threw seven
billy swore that he threw eight
stagger lee told billy,
"i cant let you go with that
you have won all my money
and my brand new stetson hat"

go stagger lee
stagger lee went home
and he got his 44 said,
"im going to the bar room
just to pay that debt i owe"

stagger le went to the bar room
and he stood across the bar room door
said,"now nobody move"
and he pulled his

"stagger lee," cried billy
"oh please dont take my life.
I GOT THREE LITTLE CHILDREN
AND A VERY SICKLY WIFE
stagger lee shot billy
oh he shot that poor boy so bad
till the bullet came through billy
and it broke the bartender's glass

now look out,stagg,come on.

I told my wife when we got married 22 years ago, much to her chagrin, that when we have a son I'm going to name him Stagger Lee (My last name is McGee, so Stagger Lee McGee...Great Name).....We have 3 beautiful Daughters.

I knew a guy who really liked Stagger lee and named his kid Stacko. With a last name of Huggins it went well together. Amazingly this song is one of those all us old people remember.
