Hey Joe

Lyrics: Jimi Hendix
Music: Jimi Hendix

Played by Bob Weir with Ratdog at a Furthur Jam in 1996.

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

I'm going down to shoot my old lady
You know, I've caught her messin' around with another man
I'm going down to shoot my old lady
You know, I've caught her messin' around with another man

Hey Joe, I've heard you shot your woman down, shot her down, now
I said I've heard you shot your old lady down, you shot her down to the ground

Yes I did, I shot her
You know, I caught her messin' round, messin' round town
Yes I did, I shot her
You know, I caught my old lady messin' around town, and I gave her the gun

Hey Joe, said now, where you gonna run to now, where you gonna run to
Hey Joe, I said where you gonna run to now, where you, where you gonna go

I'm goin' way down south, way down to Mexico way
I'm goin' way down south, way down where I can be free

Ain't no hangman gonna, he ain't gonna put a rope around me
You better believe it right now, I gotta go now
Hey Joe, you better run on down
