Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now) (Ry Cooder)

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
