Popa Chubby - Hey Joe - Live 2011




Born Ted Horowitz in the Bronx, New York, Popa Chubby was the son of a candy store owner. At 13, Chubby began playing drums; shortly thereafter, he discovered the music of the Rolling Stones and began playing guitar. Although he grew up in the 1970s, Chubby took his cue from artists of the '60s, including Sly & the Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton, among others.


By the time he was in his early twenties, he enjoyed and played blues music, but also worked for a while backing punk poet Richard Hell. Chubby's first big break was winning a national blues talent search sponsored by KLON, a public radio station in Long Beach, California.


He won the New Artist of the Year award and opened at the Long Beach Blues Festival in 1992.




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 cool

Huh hey hoe, I heard you shot your mama down

You shot her down now

Hey Joe, I heard you shot your lady down

You shot her down in the ground yeah!

Yeah!


Yes, I did, I shot her

You know I caught her messin' round messin' round town

Huh, 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 baby!

Yeah!

Oh dig it

Oh alright


Hey Joe,

Where you gonna run to now where you gonna go

Hey Joe, I said

Where you gonna run to now where you gonna go

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 hang-man gonna

He ain't gonna put a rope around me

You better believe it right now

I gotta go now


Hey, Joe

You better run on down

Goodbye everybody

Hey hey Joe
