The joint was jumping on the corner
Down on Honky Tonk Street,
All of a sudden up pulled a Cadillac
And out stepped a cat named Pete.
Diamonds on every finger, he wore a tailor made suit,
He smoked a black cigar, he wore a Stetson hat,
He wore a pair of cowboy boots,
Busted on through the doorway, mad as he could be,
He pulled out a pistol, he turned around,
He said, "My name is Big Boy Pete
The music stopped, there wasn't a sound,
Over in the corner stood Bad Man Brown.
Brown smiled and grinned, he said, "My friend

Brown pulled a knife, jumped on Pete,

They swung from north, they swung from south
Brown cut that black cigar right out of Pete's mouth
Pete hit the ground, he yelled and screamed
Then he took his Stetson hat and fleed the
