He's through with all the wrangling
Through the times gone by
Due to all the ventures and old crimes
But don't you ever cross him
You know he draws the line
With pistol packin woman looking fine

He loves his old grand Tommy
With topped up magazine
Posing when he's dressed up looking mean
But don't you stand before him
While he fires the flashing line
He may have been on the whiskey or the wine

Yeee haaa,
He's our little Joe
And our Joe is famous through all time
Yeee haaa,
He's our little Joe and the Sheriff didn’t
Take him at that time.

Way down in his diary
He writes of lonely times
Prospectin Calico silver mines
Silver pits of old
Heaped in smelly mould
He had such luck cause what he found was gold

Yeee haaa, he's our little Joe
And our Joe is famous through all time
Yeee haaa, he's our little Joe and the Sheriff didn’t
Take him at that time.

Made his name in Tombstone for
Drunk and fighting state
Make out in the stables
With old famous big nose Kate
The Doc had word or two for Joe never knew
A bullet in the gun
And he to run
Nothing more to do
His time was over due
Get out of town
Without a sound
Lifestyle needs review

Made it in the movies
He made a film or two
Sang and dance in 1922
Built the big white sign,
Built out of line
Maybe Joe was on the whisky or the wine

Yeee haaa, he's our little Joe
And our Joe is famous through all time
Yeee haaa, he's our little Joe and the Sheriff didn’t
Take him at that time

Yeee haaa, he's our little Joe
And our Joe is famous through all time
Yeee haaa, he's our little Joe and the Sheriff didn’t
Take him at that time
