    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 Stetson1 hat, I'm bound to take your 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
    "Gentleman's 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
