Ry Cooder – Big Bad Bill Is Sweet William Now lyrics

In the town of Louisville
They got a man they call Big Bad Bill
I want to tell you, he sure was tough
And he certainly did strut his stuff

He had folks all scared to death
When he walked by they all held their breath
He was a fighting man, sure enough
Now Bill got himself a wife and he leads a different life

'Cause Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now
Married life has changed him some how
Well, he's the man the town used to fear
But now the people call him sweet papa Willie dear
Stronger than Samson I declare
'Til the brown skinned woman bobbed his hair

Big Bad Bill don't fight anymore
Well, he wash his dishes and he might swob the floor
Well, he used to spend his evenings lookin' for a fight
Now he gotta see his mama every night
Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now

Well, he used to spend his evenings lookin' for a fight
Now he gotta see his mama every night
Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now
