"Hey Joe" as written by Kemar Mcgregor, Paul Crossdale, Richie Stephens and Stefan Warren....
Hey Joe,
Say where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
Hey Joe,
Say where you goin' with that gun in your hand?

Said I'm going to shoot my old lady down
Caught her messing around with another man,
Said I'm going to down to shoot my old lady
Caught her messing around on me,

Hey Joe,
I heard that you shot your old lady down
Hey Joe,
I heard that caught your old lady fucking some other guy,

And you shot her down
Well uh you know I guess that's true and all
I guess you can say I shot her yeah
Well Yes I did, I said I did

I shot her down
Say yes I did

I said I did I shot her down to down to the ground
So Hey Joe,
Where you gonna run to now?
Say where you gonna go to?
Where you gonna run?
Where you gonna hide?

Well I said I'm going way down south,
Way down the Mexico way

No one's gonna put a noose around me
I said I'm goin' way down south,
Way down the Mexico way
Way down where I can be free

    General CommentThis is an awesome cover of the Hendrix song. They do a great version, this was on the Baghdad single back in '91 and on some punk compelation i got. Hendrix kicks ass and so does The Offspring!

    Noodles is also a kick ass guitar player :)
