Stack O'Lee Blues-Ma Rainey
Ma, vocals and her Georgia Band

Stack O'Lee was a bad man, everybody know
And when they seed Stack O'Lee comin', they'd give him the road
He was my man, but he done me wrong

Stack O'Lee Stack O'Lee, was so desperate and bad
He'd take everything his women would bring and everything they had
He was my man, but he's done me wrong

Stack O'Lee's on the warpath, and you'd better run
'Cause Stack O'Lee holds a bad man and he'll kill you just for fun
He was my man, but he's done you wrong

Stack O'Lee's in jail now, with his face turned to the wall
Thirty women and old corn whiskey was the cause of it all
He was my man, but he's done you wrong

A hundred-dollar coffin and a eighty-dollar hack
Carried him to the cemetery but it did not bring him back
He was my man, but he's done me wrong
