The Big Strong Man

	  		 
    G                                                     D 
Have you heard about the big strong man,he lives in a caravan, 
                                                D7                G 
Have you heard about the Jeffery Johnson fight,Oh what a hell of a fight, 
 G                                                                        D 
You can take all the heavy weights you got,we got a lad who will beat the whole lot, 
                                                                      G 
He used to ring the bells in the belfry,now he's going to fight Jack Dempsey, 

Chorus 
G                                                                 D  
Was my brother Sylvest,whats he got,a row of forty medals on his chest,big chest 
                                              G 
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, 
                                                               D 
He's got an arm like a leg,and a punch that would sink a battle ship big ship, 
                                                        G 
It takes all the army and the navy,to put the wind up Sylvest. 


     G                                                     D 
He thought he'd take a trip to Italy,he thought that he'd go by sea, 
                                             D7                G 
He jumped off the harbor in New York,he swam like a man made of cork, 
 G                                                                        D 
He saw the Lusitania in distress,what he do,he put the Lusitania on his chest, 
                                                                   G 
He drank all the water in the sea,then he walked all the way to Italy, 

Chorus 
G                                                                 D  
Was my brother Sylvest,whats he got,a row of forty medals on his chest,big chest 
                                              G 
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, 
                                                               D 
He's got an arm like a leg,and a punch that would sink a battle ship big ship, 
                                                        G 
It takes all the army and the navy,to put the wind up Sylvest. 


     G                                                     D 
He thought he'd take a trip to old Japan,they turned out the whole brass band, 
                                             D7                G 
He played every instrument they got,like a lad sure he beat the whole lot, 
 G                                                                        D 
Now the old church bells will ring,hells fire,the whole church choir will sing, 
                                                                   G 
They all turned out to say farewell to my big brother Sylvest.
