chet w Origins: Stagger Lee / Stack O'Lee / etc. (142* d) RE: Stagger Lee 09 Jan 98


Doc Watson did a great version of Stack-o-Lee. The last verse, after the hanging is:

Stack grabbed the devil by the collar Throwed him up on the shelf Said, Get out of here, you son of a gun I'll run this place myself I'm that bad man They call me Stack-o-Lee

Doc Watson is a great source of quality versions of just about anything. The version of Staggerlee/Stack-o-Lee that I do is a combination of the ones by Doc and Taj Mahal. I'm going to work in some of the wonderful Furry Lewis verses above. Thanks for those.

Chet W.
