Lyrics and Guitar Chords Wolfe Tones - The Big Strong Man

     C                                                    G
Have you heard about the big strong man,he lives in a caravan,
                                                G7                C
Have you heard about the Jeffery Johnson fight,Oh what a hell of a fight,
 C                                                                       G
You can take all the heavy weights you got,we got a lad who will beat the whole lot,

                                                                C
He used to ring the bells in the belfry,now he's going to fight Jack Dempsey,

Chorus

C                                                               G
Was my brother Sylvest,whats he got,a row of forty medals on his chest,big chest
                                              C
He killed fifty bad men in the west,he knows no rest,

Think of a man hells fire don't push just shove plenty of room for you and me,
                                                             G
He's got an arm like a leg,and a punch that would sink a battle ship big ship,
                                                       C
It takes all the army and the navy,to put the wind up Sylvest.


     C                                                 G
He thought he'd take a trip to Italy,he thought that he'd go by sea,
                                            G7                C
He jumped off the harbor in New York,he swam like a man made of cork,
 C                                                                G
He saw the Lusitania in distress,what he do,he put the Lusitania on his chest,
                                                                 C
He drank all the water in the sea,then he walked all the way to Italy,

Chorus

C                                                              G
Was my brother Sylvest,whats he got,a row of forty medals on his chest,big chest
                                              C
He killed fifty bad men in the west,he knows no rest,

Think of a man hells fire don't push just shove plenty of room for you and me,
                                                              G
He's got an arm like a leg,and a punch that would sink a battle ship big ship,
                                                    C
It takes all the army and the navy,to put the wind up Sylvest.

     C                                                G
He thought he'd take a trip to old Japan,they turned out the whole brass band,
                                            G7              C
He played every instrument they got,like a lad sure he beat the whole lot,
 C                                                                      G
Now the old church bells will ring,hells fire,the whole church choir will sing,
                                                              C
They all turned out to say farewell to my big brother Sylvest.
