  • I come home from working hard
    I pull up to my yard and there's a man I used to know
    He used to love me right
    But then we had a little fight and now he's on parole

    Well he's lookin' mighty mean
    He's like to cause a scene
    So just hit reverse and oull out slow

    And don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
    No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

    He wears his shirt untucked
    He's got one eye covered up and he's got a big 'ol 44
    He likes to drink 'til late, then he'll break down your gate and he'll throw you to the floor
    When he looks me in the eye, he'll hit me 'till I cry, he's trying to get inside my door

    But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
    No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

    You can't even stomp and shout 'cause it's all over now and there ain't nothing left to say
    But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
    No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

    He saw me with another man, but he did not understand that I grew up with him in the same crib
    Joey started flaming red, he didn't hear a word I said and now my brother's got a broken rib

    Well, the judge and jury all agreed
    That Joey did a dirty deed
    And 50 years is what order said

    But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
    No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

    He didn't understand, the judge raised up his hand and said "You'd better leave that girl alone"
    But don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more
    No, don't pay no mind to Joe, 'cause Joey don't treat me good no more

    He's a bad man, pay no mind , pay no mind
