HEY JOE Recorded by: Carl Smith Written by: Felice and Boudleaux Bryant
[C] Hey Joe! Where'd you find that pearly-girly? Where'd you get that jolly-dolly? How'd you rate that dish I wish was [G] mine? Hey Joe! She's got skin that's creamy-dreamy Eyes that look so lovey-dovey Lips as red as cherry-berry [C] wine.
Now listen [F] Joe, I ain't no heel But old buddy let me tell you how I feel She's a honey, she's a sugar-pie I'm warning you I'm gonna try to [G] steal - her from you [C] Hey Joe! Though we've been the best of friends [F] This is where our friendship ends G] I gotta have that dolly for my [C] own.
Hey Joe! Come on let's be buddy-duddy Show me you're my palsy-walsy Introduce that pretty little chick to me Hey Joe! Quit that waitin', hesitatin Let me at her, what's the matter You're as slow as any Joe can be. Now come on Joe, let's make a deal Let me dance with her to see if she is real She's the cutist girl I've ever seen I'll tell you face to face I mean to steal - her from you Hey Joe! Now we'll be friends 'till the end This looks like the end, my friend I gotta have that dolly for my own.
