about

This is a cover of "Hey Joe" where the protagonist is female and the person murdered is male. I switched this around because I've always been troubled by the intense misogyny of the lyrics. - Eric

lyrics

Hey Josephine
(Un-Traditional)

Hello Josephine
Where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
Hello Josephine
Where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
I'm going down to shoot my old man
You know, it’s the last time he’s going to kick me around
I'm going down to shoot my old man
You know, it’s the last time he’s going to kick me around
Those blues ain't too cool
Hey Jo
I heard you shot your old man down, shot him down, now
Hey Jo
I heard you shot your old man down
Shot him down to the ground
Yes I did, I shot him
You know, it’s the last time he’s going to kick me around
Yes I did, I shot him
You know, it’s the last time he’s going to kick me around
I gave him the gun
I shot him!
Alright
Shoot him one more time for me
Yeah, dig it

Break

Ain’t no one gonna find me
Ain’t no hangman gonna put a rope around me
Ain’t no one gonna find me
Ain’t no hangman gonna put a rope around me

Hey Jo
You better run, you better run on down
Hey Jo
You better run, you better run on down
Goodbye everybody
Goin’ down where I can be free
Goodbye everybody
Ain’t no hangman gonna put a rope around me
Hey Jo
Where you gonna run, you gonna run to now
Hey Jo
Where you gonna run, you gonna run to now
Hey Jo

Break

Hey Jo
Where you goin’, goin’ run to now
Hey Jo
Where you goin’, goin’ run to now
Goodbye everybody
Goodbye
Goodbye everybody
Goodbye
