Hey Joe
The Leaves Lyrics


Hey Joe, where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
I said hey Joe where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
I'm going out to find my woman now, she's been runnin' around with some other man
I said I'm going out and find my woman now she's been runnin' around with some other man

Well hey Joe now what are you gonna do?
Well hey Joe tell me what are you gonna do?
Well I guess I'll shoot my woman now, that's what I'll do
I said I guess I'll shoot them both before I'm through

Hey Joe tell me where are you gonna go?
Well hey Joe I said where are you gonna go?
Well I guess I'll go down to my place in Mexico
Said I guess I'll go down to where a man can be free
And there ain't gonna be no hangman's ropes put around me

60's garage punk doesn't get much better than this!

@Kenneth Horne couldn't agree more, I do guess the "punk" word wasn't used untill the real "punk" music started in the mid 70's

@Kenneth Horne I was in 2 garage bands. We did use garage but never punk. That was mid 70's.

James Aron

@Kenneth Horne I think 'garage rock' was actually used but not 'punk', that was coined sometime in the '70s.

@Jorch Datorch 60s garage punk does get better than this, trust me. This song is simply one of the best versions of Hey Joe but that doesn't mean better garage punk doesn't exist. What exactly were you looking for? Harder? Faster? Rawer?? It exists you just have to look for it. It's all personal taste anyhow...

Andrew Jones

@Kenneth Horne It's like the term "post punk". No one called it that until years later. BTW, Type in "Garage Punk" in the search engine and see what pops up.

My favorite version of this song. It almost goes off the rails. The bass is is killer.

Raddmann

My favorite version too. Very raw for a 60's pop tune.

debbie matheson

Bob Edwards

@sdgakatbk The best ever version!!
