The joint was jumping on the corner down on Honky Tonk Street All of a sudden up drove 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 on cowboy boots. He busted on through the doorway, just as bad as he could be, He pulled out his 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, Take three steps forward I'm gonna clue you in. Now Pete said look here buddy before I tan your hide I got a 45 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 the south, Brown cut that black cigar right out of 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, down on Honky Tonk Street, Don't mess with Brown, he'll cut you down, Take a lesson from Big Boy Pete.
