"Hey Joe" as written by and Billy Roberts....
Hey Joe
Where you going with that gun in your hand
Hey Joe
Now tell me where you going with that gun in your hand
I'm gonna shoot my lady
'cause I caught her messing around with another man
Yes, I'm going down to shoot my lady
'cause I caught her messing around with another man

Hey Joe
I heard you shot your woman down
Hey Joe
I heard you shot your woman down
Right down to the ground
Yes I did I shot her

Yes I did I shot her
I shot my woman 'cause she was messing 'round town

I gave her the gun, I shot her!
Hey Joe
Tell me where you gonna run to now?
Hey Joe
C'mon tell me where you gonna run to?
Don't you worry about me
I'm going way down south
Way down south where I'm gonna be free
I'm going way down south
Way down south maybe outside Mexico way
I'm gonna run, oh yeah

    General CommentThe intro to this version seems to bear bits of resemblance to a farruca by Manuel de Falla.

    General CommentIt probably does because in the song it mentions Mexico. So they probably want a Spanish influenced song?

    I love this version, although the introduction could be cut shorter. The vocals are impressive, right from the "Hey.. Joe..". Awesome song.
