Grace Potter And The Nocturnals – Joey lyrics

I come home from working hard
I pull up to my yard and there's a man I used to know
He used to love me right
But then we had a little fight and now he's on parole

Well he's lookin' mighty mean
He's like to cause a scene
So just hit reverse and oull out slow

And don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

He wears his shirt untucked
He's got one eye covered up and he's got a big 'ol 44
He likes to drink 'til late, then he'll break down your gate and he'll throw you to the floor
When he looks me in the eye, he'll hit me 'till I cry, he's trying to get inside my door

But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

You can't even stomp and shout 'cause it's all over now and there ain't nothing left to say
But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

He saw me with another man, but he did not understand that I grew up with him in the same crib
Joey started flaming red, he didn't hear a word I said and now my brother's got a broken rib

Well, the judge and jury all agreed
That Joey did a dirty deed
And 50 years is what order said

But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

He didn't understand, the judge raised up his hand and said "You'd better leave that girl alone"
But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

He's a bad man, pay no mind, pay no mind
