Billy Roberts – Hey Joe lyrics
Hey Joe, where you goin' with that money in our hand?
Hey Joe, where you goin' with that money in your hand?
Chasin' my woman, she run off with another man.

Goin' downtown, buy me a Forty Four.
Goin' downtown, buy me a Forty Four.
When I get through that woman won't run no more.

Hey Joe, what you gonna do?
Hey Joe, what you gonado?
Take my pistol, and kill her before I'm through>

Hey Joe, I heard you shot you woman dead.
Hey Joe, I heard you hot your woman dead.
Yes I did, got both of them lying in that bed.

Hey Joe, where do you think you'll go?
Hey Joe, do you think you'll go?

Leaving here think I'll go to Mexico.

Yes I'm going, going where a man can be free.
Yes I'm going, going where a man can be free.
'Cause there ain't no hangman puttin' no noose on me.
