BIG BOY PETE (Don Harris / Dewey Terry) The Olympics - 1960 Also recorded by : Don & Dewey; Arch Hall Jr.; Coco Montoya; Paul Revere & The Raiders; The Righteous Brothers; Tidal Waves; Kenny Vance. WOO! The joint was a jumpin' on the corner (yeah-yeah) Down on a Honky Tonk Street (yeah-yeah) When all of a sudden up drove a Cadillac (yeah-yeah) And out stepped a cat named Pete Diamonds on-a every finger (yeah-yeah) Wore a tailor-made suit He smoked a black cigar (so what?) He wore a Stetson hat (yeah) He wore a pair-a cowboy boots He busted on through the doorway (yeah-yeah) Bad as-a he could be (yeah-yeah) He pulled out his pistol, he turned around He said, 'My name is a Big Boy Pete' The music stopped, there wasn't a sound A-over in the corner stood-a, Bad Man Brown Brown smiled a grin, he said, 'My friend' ('You take your 3 steps forward and I'm 'onna-a, clue you in') Now Pete said, 'A look it, here buddy' (yeah-yeah) 'Fore I tan your hide' (yeah-yeah) I got a forty-five to keep me alive Seven bullets on my side Brown pulled a knife, he jumped on Pete They fought from the counter right on out to the street They swung from north, they swung from south Brown cut that black cigar right outta Pete's mouth! Pete hit the ground, he yelled and screamed (Pete took his Stetson hat and beat the scene) Now if you're ever down on the corner (yeah-yeah) Down on-a Honky Tonk Street (yeah-yeah) Don't mess with Brown (yeah-yeah) He'll cut you down Take a message from-a Big Boy Pete Umm-umm, umm umm umm (yeah-yeah) Umm-umm, umm umm umm (yeah-yeah) FADES- Umm, umm, umm.
