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
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

Alright
Shoot her one more time again, baby
Yeah
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
Alright
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

I must make note of this! Humorously, The subjects created for this meme comment, I realized, suggest that the character "Me:" 's mother killed herself, AND that "Me" didn't know their own mother personally, being that Joe is - in regards to the currently trending internet troll-meme known as 'Your mama', or colloquially known, 'Joe Mama' - your mother. I added analysis remarks to the following verbatim to help you understand my point better;
Friend: u mean Joe?

Me: who is Joe? (Through this interrogative, it's implied that "Me" doesn't personally know their own mother)

Friend: joe mama (Here, the fictional "Friend", is informing the latter fictional "Me", that Joe is in fact "Me" 's mother, bringing with it the other implication that Joe, with respect to the events of the lyrics of the song, has killed himself. Though truly rather, HER-self, as I've stated that Joe in this context is a woman, being that she is established as the mother of the now informed character, "Me")

Me: 0:37 (Thus, as the lyrics describe Joe, in response to finding out she slept with herself, will shoot and kill herself because Joe wouldn't have a wife if "Me" was born asexually)

*the meme could also suggest that Joe is sexually oriented as a lesbian

Hey Joe, where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
Hey Joe, I said, where you goin' with that gun in your hand?

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 woman down
You shot her down, down
Hey Joe, I heard you shot your old lady down
You shot her down to 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 and I shot her


Alright
Shoot her one more time again, forgiven, baby
Yeah
Ah, dig it
Ah, alright


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


Hey Joe, I said
Where you goin' to run to now, where you, where you gonna go?
Well, dig it
I'm goin' way down south
Way down to Mexico way


Alright
I'm goin' way down south
Way down where I can be free
Ain't no one gonna find me, baby


Ain't no hangman gonna
He ain't gonna put a rope around me
You better believe it right now
I gotta go now


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

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.

@Jennifer Ryan I’d like to know you. You seem to be a nice person.
