Intro : E   E7 
 
 
 E Uptown  E7 got it's  E  hustlers
The bowery  E7 got it's  E  bums
42nd Street got  E7 Big Jim  E  Walker
He's a pool-shooting  E7 son of a  E  gun
Yeah, he  A  big and dumb as a man can come
But he  E stronger than a  E7 country  E  hoss
And when the  B7 bad folks all get tog A  ether at night
You know they  A7 all call big Jim " E  Boss", just because
And they  E7  say
 
 
You don't  A tug on  A7 Superman's  E  cape
You don't  A spit  A7 into the  E  wind
You don't  A pull the mask off that  A7  old Lone Ranger
And you  B7 don't mess a A7 round with  E  Jim
 
 
Well outta  E south Ala E7 bama came a  E  country boy
He say I'm looking for a  E7 man named  E  Jim
I am a  E7 pool-shooting  E  boy
My name  E7 Willie Mc E  Coy
But down home they  E7 call me  E  Slim
Yeah I'm  A  looking for the king of 42nd Street
He driving a  E7 drop top Cadil E  lac
Last week he  B7  took all my money
And it  A  may sound funny
But I  A7 come to get my  A money  E  back
And everybody  E7  say Jack don't you know
 
 
You don't  A tug on  A7 Superman's  E  cape
You don't  A spit  A7 into the  E  wind
You don't  A pull the mask off that  A7  old Lone Ranger
And you  B7 don't mess a A7 round with  E  Jim
 
 
Well a  E hush fell  E7 over the  E  pool room
Jimmy come bopping in  E7 off the  E  street
And when the  E7 cutting were  E  done
The only  E7 part that wasn't  E  bloody
Was the  E7 soles of the big man's  E  feet
Yeah he were  A  cut in bout a hundred places
And he were  E shot in a couple  E7  more
And you  B7  better believe
They sung a  A different kind of  A7  story
When big  A Jim hit the  E floor,  now they  E7  say
 
 
You don't  A tug on  A7 Superman's  E  cape
You don't  A spit  A7 into the  E  wind
You don't  A pull the mask off that  A7  old Lone Ranger
And you  B7 don't mess a A7 round with  E  Slim
 
 
Yeah, big Jim got his hat
Find out where it's at
And it's not hustling people strange to you
Even if you do got a two-piece custom-made pool cue
 
 
You don't  A tug on  A7 Superman's  E  cape
You don't  A spit  A7 into the  E  wind
You don't  A pull the mask off that  A7  old Lone Ranger
And you  B7 don't mess a A7 round with  E Slim   E7       B7       E
