Joe's on the run

BluesMatters 2019


Joe killed his sweetheart, he shot her down

Joe’s on the run he’s deserting this town

Ain’t no hangman gonna tie him no rope

Way down south is where there is hope


Joe caught his sweetheart, messin’ round town

Had no option but to shoot her down

He shot her once and he shot her twice

He’s on the run, and he’s paying the price


Joe’s running faster, his gun in his hand

He’s on his way to this different land

No ifs and buts about where to go

Way down south, down to Mexico
