Tommy, who's gonna take her home, you or me
Oh yeah I know, we both want her and we both need
Is it gonna be you or me
Tommy, for six years we never disagreed
So don't cross that line
Not gonna tell you one more time
The fire in that girl is mine

Now I know because I saw it in your eyes
And don't you know your voice cracked
Whenever you started to lie
Well, ain't it hell
Now we've all gotta pay for our sins
And don't you leave now
Good things have to end
I'm sorry, but here's where it ends

And now I guess you know what's inside
The church-going dress
And don't you try to lie to me
Because I already heard she confessed
The shifted sands and wind will never let you say
Already the birds fly low because they know
They know why you pray

Hey Joanne, don't lift your skirt behind the garbage can
I know someplace we could see my love that fled from your face
Hey Joanne, why do you tremble in the arms of your man
Oh, I'd never hurt you, won't you understand
Always be your man

I didn't mean to hurt nobody
I just sorta lost my head
When I saw her with him, well
Everything went red
Now don't you cry Joanne
In my arms here you are safe
No one can come between us, oh no
I'm never going back to that place
