Kingston Trio – Old Joe Clark lyrics
Nick Reynolds/Bob Shane/John Stewart
Fare thee well, old Joe Clark. Good-bye, Mitzi Brown. Fare thee well, old Joe Clark. I'm gonna leave this town. (Repeat last time)
Old Joe Clark used to clean the bar. Liquor was his pay. Never saved a golden eagle. Drank it all away.
I don't want your old time religion or what you got to say (say) but pass me down that barley jug and I'll be on my way. A singin'
Old Joe Clark walked downtown backwards. People asked him, "Why?"
I come back for one more drink while wavin' you good-bye!"
