(Big John, Big John)

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
Ver 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 a big, big man,
Big John
(Big John, Big John)
Big Bad John
(Big John)
(Big John)
Big Bad John
