Big Jim Cooley commanded respect whatever he wanted he could get

The badge on his waistcoat shone in the sun

It ain't no lie that Big Jim was feared by everyone


In the saloon one evening Big took a bet

with a rancher whose name I forget

He wanted a herd taken over the plain

and he called Jim yellow he'll never do that again


He got mad


He threw his badge on the floor and walked out

he's gonna give it a try he left no doubt


Must be mad he must be mad


The people wished him well and good luck


Well I don't need it He laughed


got on his horse and rode away


Out on the trail Jim n his crew of five

were trying their best to keep the cattle alive

The weather was hard but so were the men

Though I don't think even Big will try this trip again


His horses were edgy sensing trouble ahead

but the trouble didnt start until the men were in bed

A whooping and a hollering flashing their knives

Big and his men were jumped by an allstar Indian tribe

He was scared Big Jim was scared


Alive they called him lucky but not today

Cos he died like all good cowboys with his boots on next to his men

Big Jim he still won't lie dow


for him the bet is still on

Some say he rides there cursing still

Some say they've seen him
