Hey Joe, Why Did You Shoot Them Down?

Sharing is Caring!

By LV

Hey Joe was recorded by Jimi Hendrix in 1966.

Below are revised lyrical verses composed after the deadly drone attack on little kids in Afghanistan.

Hey Joe, a-where you goin’ with that pen in your hand?
Hey Joe, I said, where you goin’ with that pen in your hand? Oh yeah

 

I’m going down to shoot the Taliban

You know I caught them messin’ ’round with our servicemen
I’m goin’ to shoot down the Taliban
You know I caught them messin’ ’round with our servicemen
Huh, and that ain’t too cool

 

Hey Joe, I heard you shot seven kids down
You shot them down
Hey Joe, I heard you shot innocent people down
You droned them down to the ground, yeah
Yeah

 

 

Yes, I did, I shot them,

You know I caught them messin’ round, messin’ round

Yes, I did, I shot them

You know I caught them, then sent in the drone

And I gave the okay

I shot them.

 

 

Alright.

Shoot them one more time again, baby

Yeah

Oh, dig it.

Ah, alright.

 

 

Hey Joe,

You left Americans in Afghanistan

Hey Joe, I said

 

 

You left our weapons to the Taliban

Come on, man. 

I hunted down the Taliban

Like I said I would

I droned them and made them pay.
