When you go to Helena stop on Cherry Street
When you go to Helena stop on Cherry Street
And just ask anybody to show you Reachin' Pete

He's the tallest man, walks on Cherry Street
He's the tallest man, walks on Cherry Street
And he, the baddest copper ever walked that beat

Met me one Sunday morning, just about the break of day
Lord, he met me one Sunday morning, just about the break of day
I was drinking my moonshine, he made me throw my knife away

Well, he taken my partner, carried her to the jail
Well, he taken my partner, carried her to the jail
After he locked her up, he turned and went her bail

Reachin' Pete's all right, but his buddy almost ill
Reachin' Pete's all right, but his buddy almost ill
Every time he meet you, he ready for a plenty hell
