Kingston Trio – Old Joe Clark lyrics

Nick Reynolds/Bob Shane/John Stewart

Chorus:
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.

[Chorus:]

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'

[Chorus:]

Old Joe Clark walked downtown backwards. People asked him, "Why?"
I come back for one more drink while wavin' you good-bye! "

[Chorus:]
