Johnny Rivers – Hey Joe lyrics

Hey Joe, oh, where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
Hey Joe, I said, where you goin' with that gun in your
Hand?
I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady,
You know, I caught her messin' around with another man,
Yeah.
I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady,
You know, I caught her messin' around with another man.
And that ain't too cool.
Hey Joe, I heard you shot your woman down,

You shot her down, now.
Hey Joe, I heard you shot your old lady down,
You shot her down to the ground, yeah!
Yes I did, I shot her, you know I caught her messin'
Round,
Messin' round town.
Oh yes, I did, I shot her.
You know, I caught my old lady messin' around town
And I gave her the gun, I shot her!
