Butcher Pete (Part 1)
Roy Brown (1950)

(In rockabilly style)

Ab
Hey everybody, did the news get around
        Ab
About a guy named Butcher Pete
    Db
Oh, Pete just flew into this town
         Ab
And he's choppin' up all the women's meat

[Chorus]
         Db
He keeps hackin' and whackin' and smackin'
         Ab
He keeps hackin' and whackin' and smackin'
         Bb7
He keeps hackin' and whackin' and smackin'
        Db
He just hacks, whacks, choppin' that meat

Ab
Butcher Pete's got a long sharp knife
   Ab
He starts choppin' and don't know when to stop
Db
All you fellas gotta watch your wives
       Ab
'Cause Pete don't care whose meat he chops

[Chorus]

Solo
Ab / / / | Db / Ab / | Eb / Ab /

Ab
Ever since Pete flew into town
Ab
He's been havin' a ball
Db
Just cuttin' and choppin' for miles around
Ab
Single women, married women, old maids and all

[Chorus]

Ab
Wakes up in the morning, half past five
Ab
Chops from sunrise to sunset
Db
I don't see how he stays alive
Ab
Meat's gonna be the death of ole Pete yet

[Chorus]

Solo
Ab / / / | Db / Ab / | Eb / Ab /

Ab
The poe-lice put Pete in jail
Ab
Yes, he finally met his fate
    Db
But when they came to pay his bail
Ab
They found him choppin' on his cell mate

[Chorus]

     Ab
That Butcher Pete is a crazy man
Db
Tries to chop down the wind and the rain
Ab
Just hacks on anything he can get
Ab
Say, turn this record over, you ain't heard nothin' yet
