Hey Joe where are you going
With that gun in your hand
I said now
Hey Joe where are you going
With that gun in your hand

Going down to shoot my old lady
Cause you know
I caught her messing a round town
I'm going down to shoot my old lady
Cause I caught her messing around
With another man

Hey Joe I heard you shot your woman down
Shot her down
Hey I said hey Joe
I heard you shot your woman down
Shot her down to the ground
Yes I did, I shot her
Cause I caught her messing around town

Hey Joe I heard you shot your woman down
Shot her down
But I said hey Joe
I heard you shot your woman down
Shot her down shot her down
Yes, yes I did, I shot her
Cause I caught her messing around town

Hey Joe where you gonna run to now
I said, I said hey Joe where you gonna run to now
Where you gonna go
Well Jig I'm going down south way down to Mexico way
I said I'm going down south way down to Mexico way
