Lucinda Williams – Joy lyrics
Written by? Lucinda Williams.
From carwheels on A gravel road (Mercury Records cd).

I don't want you anymore
Cause you took my joy
I don't want you anymore
You took my joy

You took my joy
I want it back
You took my joy
I want it back

I'm gonna go to west memphis and look for my joy
Go to west memphis and look for my joy
Maybe in west memphis I'll find my joy
Maybe in west memphis i'll find my joy

I'm gonna go to slidell and look for my joy
Go to slidell and look for my joy
Maybe in slidell I'll find my joy
Maybe in slidell I'll find my joy

(first long instrumental break)

You got no right to take my joy
I want it back
You got no right to take my joy
I want it back

You took my joy
I want it back
You took my joy
I want it back

I'm gonna go to west memphis and look for my joy
Go to west memphis and look for my joy
Maybe in west memphis i'll find my joy
Maybe in west memphis i'll find my joy

I'm gonna go to slidell and look for my joy
Go to slidell and look for my joy
Maybe in slidell i'll find my joy
Maybe in slidell i'll find my joy

(second instrumental break)

I don't want you anymore
Cause you took my joy
I don't want you anymore
You took my joy

You took my joy
I want it back
You took my joy
I want it back

You took my joy
I want it back
You took my
I want it back
