      The Charlie Daniels Band - Big Bad John Música y Letra

      [Spoken]
      Ev'ry mornin' at the mine you could see him arrive
      He stood six foot six and weighed two forty five
      Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip
      And everybody knew ya didn't give no lip to Big John.
      Big John, Big John, Big Bad John (Big John)
      
      Nobody seemed to know where John called home
      He just drifted into town and stayed all alone
      He didn't say much, kinda quiet and shy
      And if you spoke at all, you just said "Hi" to Big John.
      
      Somebody said he came from New Orleans
      Where he got in a fight over a Cajun Queen
      And a crashin' blow from a huge right hand
      Sent a Loosiana fellow to the Promised Land, Big John
      Big John, Big John, Big Bad John (Big John)
      
      Then came the day at the bottom of the mine
      When a timber cracked and men started cryin'
      Miners were prayin' and hearts beat fast
      And everybody thought that they'd
      Breathed their last-'cept John
      
      Through the dust and the smoke of this man-made hell
      Walked a giant of a man that the miners knew well
      Grabbed a saggin' timber, gave out with a groan
      And like a giant oak tree he just stood there alone, Big John
      Big John, Big John, Big Bad John (Big John)
      
      And with all of his strength he gave a mighty shove
      Then a miner yelled out "There's a light up above!"
      And twenty men scrambled from a would-be grave
      Now there's only one left down there to save, Big John
      
      With jacks and timbers they started back down
      Then came that rumble way down in the ground
      And then smoke and gas belched out of that mine
      Everybody knew it was the end of the line for Big John
      Big John, Big John, Big Bad John (Big John)
      
      Now, they never reopened that worthless pit
      They just placed a marble stand in front of it
      These few words are written on that stand
      "At the bottom of this mine lies one hell of a man, Big John"
      Big John, Big John, Big Bad John (Big John)
      
      (Big John, Big John, Big John)...
