Lloyd Price - Stagger Lee chords

D G DThe night was clear, and the moon was yellow..
A7 DAnd the leaves came tumblin' down...
#1.(fast, rock.)
D D7I was standin' on the corner,
G7When I heard my bull dog bark.
DHe was barkin' at the two men
A7 D Who were gamblin' in the dark.
D D7It was Stagger Lee and Billy,
G7Two men who gambled late.
DStagger lee threw a seven,
A7 DBilly swore that he threw eight.
D D7Stagger Lee, said Billy,
G7I can't let you go with that.
DYou have won all my money,
A7 DAnd my brand-new Stetson hat.
DStagger Lee went home,
G7And he got his forty-four.
DHe said, I'm goin' to the barroom
A7 DJust to pay that debt I owe.
A7(Go, Stagger Lee.)
D D7Stagger Lee went to the barroom,
G7And he stood across the barroom door.
D A7 DHe said, Nobody move, and he pulled his .44.
D D7Stagger Lee, cried Billy,
G7Oh, please don't take my life!
DI've got three little children,
A7 DAnd a very sickly wife.
D D7Stagger Lee shot Billy.
G7Oh, he shot that poor boy so bad..
DThat the bullet went through Billy
A7 D And broke the bartender's glass.
A7(Look out now.)
D D7 G7Go, Stagger Lee..go, Stagger Lee..go, Stagger Lee..
D A7 DGo, Stagger Lee..go, go...Fade.
