Hey Joe
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics

Hey Joe, where you goin' with that gun of your hand?
Hey Joe, I said, where you goin' with that gun in your hand? Oh
I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady
You know I caught her messin' 'round with another man, yeah
I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady
You know I caught her messin' 'round with another man
Huh, and that ain't too cool

Hey Joe, I heard you shot your mama down
You shot her down now
Hey Joe, I heard you shot your lady down
Shot her down in the ground, yeah

Yes, I did, I shot her
You know I caught her messin' round, messin' round town
Yes, I did, I shot her
You know I caught my old lady messin' 'round town
And I gave her the gun
I shot her

Shoot her one more time again, baby
Oh, dig it
Ah, alright

Hey, Joe
Where you gonna run to now? Where you gonna run to?
Hey Joe, I said
Where you gonna run to now? Where you, where you gonna go?

Well, dig
I'm goin' way down south
Way down to Mexico way
I'm goin' way down south
Way down where I can be free
Ain't no one gonna find me
Ain't no hangman gonna
He ain't gonna put a rope around me
You better believe right now
I gotta go now

Hey, Joe
You better run on down
Goodbye, everybody, ow
Hey, hey, Joe

No offense dude but that is bullshit like comes out of a bull's ass. Both couldn't do a cover of a Hendrix work like Voodoo Child or Red House without doing it a significant differential less well, let alone formulating the conception of the arrangement in the first place. Saying they are more talented than Jimi Hendrix is like saying Shaun Maloney is more talented than Lionel Messi. (Soccer players).

After Jimi Hendrix, the second best guitarist is Jimmy Page. Satriani and Vai do not make the top 10.

Dull minded plebians sometimes don't understand music as well as they think that they do.

Other notable guitarists in the top 10 are David Gilmour of Pink Floyd and Jeff Beck.

This is my truth -

I wonder if people living in the 60's were like, "fuck Hendrix, I wish I was born at the time of Beethoven. Now that's real music."

@Mary Fehrenbach The music you're talking about simply stopped being as mainstream as the formulated pop. A good analogy is clothing. There wrere times when most clothes were crafted well with good materials. Nowadays most clothes are super cheap and crappy, so does that mean there aren't any good new clothes? Absolutely not, they just won't be spoon fed to you. It's the same way with music

Oh hell no!!! Didn't even know who Beethoven was! The music from the 60's & 70's was the 'Beethoven' music of the times!!!! Music before today was real!!! Today's music is technically mastered for profit only. How many of the 'new pop stars' can really carry a note if asked to sing acappella?

@Leo SRL300 I'm a rock fan and I love today's rocks music. I can appreciate the Beatles but I'd rather stick with black midi and King Gizzard, Ty Segall etc. than go back in time. You're just bitter and old. If not in age, then in soul.

This is the first song my big brother learned on the guitar. He was a hell of a good player, and a good man. He died a few weeks ago; all I have left of him are memories and music. Thank God for Hendrix, because he’s keeping the past alive for me.

I love you
