Leaves – Hey Joe lyrics
Hey, Joe, where you going
With that gun in your hand
I said, hey, Joe, where you going
With that gun in your hand

I'm going out and find my woman now
She's been running around with
Some other man
I said, I'm going out to find my woman
She's been running around with
Some other man

Hey, Joe, now
What are you gonna do
Hey, Joe, tell me
What are you gonna do

Well, I guess I'll shoot my woman now
That's what I'll do
Said I guess I'll shoot them both
Before I'm through

Hey, Joe, tell me
What are you gonna do
Hey, Joe, I said
What are you gonna do

Well, I guess I'll go down
To my place in Mexico
Said I guess I'll go down
To where a man can be free

And there ain't gonna be no
Hangman's ropes gonna be
Put around me
