Jimmy dean makes better saugu
This ending is the incorrect version. It should be At the bottom of this mine lies one hell of a man---Big John.

No Geoge, no.
The inspiration for the character of Big John was an actor, John Minto, that Dean met in a summer stock play, Destry Rides Again, who was 6'5". Dean would call him "Big John" and grew to like the rolling sound of the phrase.
He's taking about jonhy cash
Yea big John makes it out . Saved by a Cajun Queen
BIG JOHN!

True story
Just FYI there is a follow-up song to Big Bad John and his story. Found that a couple days ago: The Cajun Queen
Kind of reminds me of my own father. Was a very, very big man, but of few words. Gone 12 years now.
Great song
Before the sausage was a string of great country tunes by Jimmy Dean, the best IMO is Big Bad John.
Love

Awesome song
Love this song. I feel so young commenting on this! I don't have any memories! I'm only 13! LOVE it anyways! Gene Autry is my definite favorite though! =)
At the bottom of this mine lies a big, big man..... Big John.
