Jimi Hendrix Experience - Hey Joe - 1967

Lyrics

Hey Joe
Where you going with that gun in your hand?
Hey Joe
I said where you going with that gun in your hand?

[Verse 1]
I’m going down to shoot my old lady
You know, I caught her messing around with another man
I’m going down to shoot my old lady
You know, I caught her messing around with another man
And that ain’t too cool

[Verse 2 ]
Hey Joe
I heard you shot your woman down
Shot her down, now
Hey Joe
I heard you shot your old lady down
You shot her down to the ground

[Verse 3]
Yes I did, I shot her
You know, I caught her messing around, messing around town
Yes I did, I shot her
You know, I caught my old lady messing around town
And I gave her the gun
I shot her!

[Guitar Solo/Bridge]
Hey Joe, alright
Shoot her one more time, baby

[Verse 4]
Hey Joe, said now
Where you going to run to now?
Where you going to run to?
Hey Joe, I said
Where you going to run to now?
Where you, where you going to go?
Well, dig it

[Verse 5]
I’m going way down south
Way down to Mexico way
Alright
I’m going way down south
Way down where I can be free
There’s no one going to find me

[Verse 6]
There’s no hangman going to
He ain’t gonna put a rope around me
You better believe it right now
I got to go now

[Outro]
Hey Joe
You better run on down
Goodbye everybody, ow!
Hey Joe, uh
Run on down
