This is the story of two word Joe
'Bout the saddest old story one person could know
About how his love went fast so his head got slow
And this is how old Joe's story goes

Two word Joe was a regular guy
From a regular town of a regular size
At the age of 21 he made a real fine bride out of Sally Roseluna

Joe was a preacher and intelligent guy
He made a dollar a day but he never asked why
'Cause he found great pride in openin' eyes to the power of a womans love

Well Sally was flattered at first I guess
But as time went on she was less impressed
And she caught her blue eyes on a brand new dress
So she found a new daddy in town

Two word Joe was an awful wreck
And we didn't see much of him when Sally left
But in three weeks flat he was back in check
With a bitty named Mary Susan

Low Joe couldn't take that kind of hurtin' again
So he took up the law and he learned the thing
He started living big like the established man
So he could spoil young Mary Sue

Mary Sue got tired of the glitter and gold
She wanted something real before she grew too old
She ran of with a beggar in Buffalo
To go work for the sick and the needy

Low Joe broke down and his mind went clean
And all the cry must have blown his smart part of his brain
'Cause two times a loss cause two times the pain
Now he only gets two words in one time

And you can see it in his eyes when he speaks to you
That there is so many words he's tryin' to push on through
He says one word another one and then that's it
And it sounds a little something like this:
No love
Big pain
Sadness remains
Many years
So blue
So lone
No friends
Closed door
This life
What for
No days
No tears
No more
No days
No tears
No more
