Mississippi John Hurt – Stack O’Lee

gotfryd_MississippiJohn001-1024x814

Police Officer, How can it be?

You can ‘rest everybody but cruel Stack O’ Lee.

That bad man, oh, cruel Stack O’ Lee.

Billy de Lyon told Stack O’ Lee, “Please don’t take my life.

I got two little babies, and a darlin’ lovin’ wife.”

That bad man, oh, cruel Stack O’ Lee.

“What I care about you little babies, your darlin’ lovin’ wife?

You done stole my Stetson hat, I’m bound to take you life.”

That bad man, cruel Stack O’ Lee. ..with the forty-four.

When I spied Billy de Lyon, he was lyin’ down on the floor.

That bad man, oh cruel Stack O’ Lee.

“Gentlemans of the jury, what do you think of that?

Stack O’ Lee killed Billy de Lyon about a five-dollar Stetson hat.”

That bad man, oh, cruel Stack O’ Lee.

And all they gathered, hands way up high,

At twelve o’clock they killed him, they’s all glad to see him die.

That bad man, oh, cruel Stack O’ Lee
