Grace Potter and the Nocturnals – Joey

From their 2005 album, Nothing But The Water. The song did not chart. The live video was shot at Red Rocks in Colorado

Joey

I come home from workin’ 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’d like to cause a scene
Just hit reverse and pull out slow
And don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘Cause Joey don’t treat me good no more
And don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘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 and then he’ll break down your gate
And he’ll throw you to the floor
Well, he looks me in the eye
He’ll hit me ’till I cry
He’s tryin’ to get inside my door
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘Cause Joey don’t treat me good no more
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
Joey don’t treat me good no more
Well, well, well, well, well
You can’t even stop and shout
‘Cause it’s all over now
And there ain’t nothin’ left to say
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘Cause Joey don’t treat me good no more
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘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
Joey did a dirty deed
And 50 years is what the order said
But don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘Cause Joey don’t treat me good no more
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
Joey don’t treat me good no more, no more
Well, he didn’t understand
The judge raised up his hand
And said, ? You’d better leave that girl alone, leave her alone?
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘Cause Joey don’t treat me good no more
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
‘Cause Joey don’t treat me good no more
Don’t pay no mind to Joey
Joey don’t treat me good no more, no more
That’s what I said
I said, don’t pay no mind, pay no mind
Pay no mind, pay no mind, pay no mind, pay no mind
No mind, pay no mind, pay no mind, pay no mind
