Hey Joe
Where you going with that gun in your hand
Hey Joe
Where you going with that gun in your hand

Going down to shoot my old lady
You know I caught her messing around with another man
Going down to shoot my old lady
You know I caught her messing around on me

Hey Joe
I heard that you shot your old lady down
Hey Joe
I heard that you shot your old lady down

Yes I did, I shot her her
You know, I caught that girl messing around town
Yes I did, I shot her her
You know, I caught that girl messing around town

I took out my gun,
Then I shot her
I shot her

Hey Joe
Where you gonna run to now
Hey Joe
Where you gonna run to now
Where you gonna go

Ain't no hangman gonna
Get a rope around me
Ain't no hangman gonna
Get a rope around me. (no one gonna)

Goin' way down south
Way down to Mexico way
Goin' way down south
Way down where I can be free
