42nd Street got Big Jim Walker   
                              E7   
He's a pool-shootin' son of a gun   
    A7   
Yeah, he big and dumb as a man can come   
   
But he stronger than a country hoss   
             B7                A7   
And when the bad folks all get together at night   
              B7                A7             E   
You know they all call big Jim 'Boss', just because    
   
And they say   
          A7                E7   
You don't tug on Superman's cape   
          A7            E7   
You don't spit into the wind   
          A7    
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger   
        B7                     E   
And you don't mess around with Jim   
                              B7

E         
Well outta south Alabama came a country boy   
   
He say I'm lookin' for a man named Jim

My name Willie McCoy   
                           E7   
But down home they call me Slim   
         A7   
Yeah I'm lookin' for the king of 42nd Street   
   
He drivin' a drop top Cadillac   
             B7   
Last week he took all my money   
       A7   
And it may sound funny   
       B7                 A7   
But I come to get my money back   
             E

Well a hush fell over the pool room   
   
Jimmy come boppin' in off the street   
   
And when the cuttin' were done   
   
The only part that wasn't bloody   
        E7   
Was the soles of the big man's feet   
             A7   
Yeah he were cut in in bout a hundred places   
   
And he were shot in a couple more   
        B7   
And you better believe   
     A7   
They sung a different kind of story   
     B7              E   
When big Jim hit the floor now they say   
          A7                E7   
You don't tug on Superman's cape   
          A7            E7   
You don't spit into the wind   
          A7   
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger   
        B7                     E   
And you don't mess around with Slim   
                     B7

Find out where it's at   
   
And it's not hustlin' people strange to you   
   
Even if you do got a two-piece custom-made pool cue   
               A7                E7   
Yeah you don't tug on Superman's cape   
          A7            E7   
You don't spit into the wind   
          A7   
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger   
        B7                     E   
And you don't mess around with Slim
