Even Jesus give Old Joe a pass to the Pearlie Gates
Den, why dey string him up?
Dey needed a n***** satisfy somebody
But Old Joe?
He a n***** aint he?
Why somebody need to be satisfy?
Hear Boss wanted some buck breakin
Mistake an broke dat boy neck
Hear Missus got wind
She like dat boy for herself
I’d seen dat, Sho nuff
She neva like da way Old Joe smooth things
She say, “N***** Please” when he start up
Boss took to satisfy hisself and Missus by hangin’ Old Joe
Jesus, lawd of mercy
BACK TO WORK N*****
