(William Roberts)
Hey Joe where you goin with that money in your hand
Hey Joe where you goin with that money in your hand

I'm goin downtown, buy me a blue steel 44
I'm goin downtown, buy me a blue steel 44

Hey Joe, where you goin with that gun in your hand
Hey Joe, where you goin with that gun in your hand

I'm goin downtown find my baby she's been running with another man
Gonna find my woman she's been running with another man.

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

Yes I did I shot her just like I said
Yes I did I shot her just like I said

Hey Joe where you gonna run to now
Hey Joe where you gonna run to now

I'm goin way down south
I'm goin way down south where I can be free

Ain't no hangman
Ain't no hangman
Ain't' no hangman
Ain't no hangman puttin no noose around me.
