"Old Joe Clark" as written by and Jimmy Bryant....
[Chorus]
Fare thee well, old Joe Clark. Good-bye, Mitzi Brown.
Fare thee well, old Joe Clark. I'm gonna leave this town. (Repeat last time)

Old Joe Clark used to clean the bar. Liquor was his pay.
Never saved a golden eagle. Drank it all away.

[Chorus]

I don't want your old time religion or what you got to say (say)
But pass me down that barley jug and I'll be on my way. A singin'

[Chorus]

Old Joe Clark walked downtown backwards. People asked him, "Why?"
I come back for one more drink while wavin' you good-bye!"

[Chorus]
