(C. Alphanso) Transcribed by El Guapo (john escalante) email@example.com One of my favs from London Calling, Intro. has the hammond organ sound and the rest is play with a "ska" guitar(plenty of upstrokes and left hand mutes). There's not a lot of changes with the guitar, it's the walking bass line and the organ that really makes the sound The intro is play on "big hammond" notes not chords E D Stagger Lee met Billy and C D they got down to gambling E Stagger Lee throwed seven D C Billy said that he throwed eight E D C D So Billy said, "hey stagger! I'm gonna make my big attack E D C I'm gonna have to leave my knife in your back Start all over again! Chord Progression for rest of Song G 6x C 2x G 2x D 2x First Verse G Why do you try to cheat and trample people under your feet C Don't you know it is wrong To cheat a trying man G Don't you know it is wrong To cheat a trying man D So you better stop, it is the wrong 'em boyo Second Verse You lie steal and deciet In such a small, small game Don't you know it is wrong To cheat a trying man Don't you know it is wrong To Cheat a trying man You'd better stop, It is the wrong em boyo Third verse (Instrumental) Fourth Verse Billy Boy has been shot and Stagger Lee's come out on top Don't you know it is wrong To cheat a trying man Don't you know it is wrong To Cheat Stagger man You'd better stop It is the wrong em boyo Fifth Verse So you must start all over again, all over again You got to play it Billy play, you got to play it, billy play and you will find it is the right 'em boyo Sixth Verse But if you must lie and deceit and trample people under your feet Don't you know it's wrong To cheat a trying man You'd better stop It is the wrong 'em boyo ??
