Champion Jack Dupree
Jack Dupree - vocal & piano
Ennis Lowry - guitar
Wendell Marshall - bass, Willie Jones - drums.
Album: 'Blues From The Gutter'

Stag-o-Lee and Billy Lyons
They was gamblin' in the dark
Stag-o-Lee told Billy
'Billy Lyons, lets take a walk'

Stag-o-Lee, won Billy Lyon's money
And he took Billy Lyon's Stetson hat
Billy Lyons said, 'Stag-o-Lee
'Lord, why'd you do me like that? '

Now, Billy Lyons begged Stag-o-Lee
Said, 'Please give me back my hat'
'Cause you know you won my money
Please don't take my hat'

Now, Billy Lyons said to Stag-o-Lee
Said, 'Please, please don't take my life
I've got two little children
And a po' little homeless wife'

(sax & instrumental)

Billy Lyons said to Stag-o-Lee
'Why'd you do your friend like that? '
Say, 'You won all my money
And you took my Stetson hat'

Stag-o-Lee shot Billy Lyon
And he fell down on his knees
He said, 'Lord, have mercy
Lord, have mercy if you please

Stag-o-Lee run to the corner
And he look up and down
Said, 'i'd rather see you, Billy
Six feet in the ground'

Now, the people start to weepin'
And some of them begin to moan
Ev'rybody was worried
'Bout po' Billy Lyons was gone

Te-na, te-na-na
Te-na, na-ne-na
Te-na, na-na-na
Te-na, ne-na, ne-na

Say, I want Louis
Armstrong and his band
To play the blues
As they lay my body down
I want 10, 000 women
To be at my buryin' ground.
