JOE McGEE

Do you remember Joe McGee
Well, he did some wrong to me
And itís been ten long lousy years
Since Iíve been free
Yeah, itís been ten long lousy years
Since Iíve been free

 

He thought that he would try
To catch my ladyís eye
And when I flew into a rage
I think that he knew why
When I flew into a rage
Well, he knew why

 

And things would be a lot better
If she and I could get together
If only I could find some way
To get back home today
If only I could find some way
To get back home

 

Well, when I caught up with Joe
He was drunk and kinda slow
I only hit him once and then
His blood began to flow
I only hit him once and his
Blood began to flow

 

Olí Joe he died that night
But the judge he set things right
He gave me fifteen years
And another five for spite
He gave me fifteen years
And another five for spite

 

And things would be a lot better
If she and I could get together
If only I could find some way
To get back home today
If only I could find some way
To get back home

 

And things would be a lot better
If she and I could get together
If only I could find some way
To get back home today
If only I could find some way
To get back home

 

If only I could find some way

To get back home

If only I could find some way
To get back home
