SPOKEN: Stagolee, now, right on Stagolee

Stagolee, oh Stack, what do you think about that?
Killed poor Billy De Lyon 'bout a five-dollar Stetson hat
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun?

By Sunday Stack was arrested, Monday he was in jail
Tuesday morning, he was out on a hundred-dollar bail
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun?

"Stagolee", says Billy, "Please don't take my life.
I've got two little children and a dear little lovin' wife."
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun?

"My one was a boy, other is a girl."
"You'll never see your father's face 'til you meet him in another world."
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun

Stack said to his woman, like some rounder would do
"Get me out of this cellar, girl, no tellin' what I'll do for you."
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun?

"Why, some call me Stack, my name is Billy Wills.
I am not your prisoner, go and hunt somebody else."
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun?

Stagolee and Billy had a noble fight
Hey, I would call that a awful, real bad night
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun?

Stack shot poor Billy, Billy fell against the trees
He cried, "Look-a-here, Stack done murdered me!"
REFRAIN: Ain't he a bad man with his gun
