lyrics

Joe ⓒ 2008

name, my name is joe
and i come from down in the valley ,from down in the valley below
my age, don't really know
but i've been older than most and younger than some i've known


a slave i have not been
but i've been close to a slave as any a man has been
my love, bent by the wind
for there's little thats stronger than the winds of sin


and so i go back to the place
where the fire burns the oil that's the reason that they came
and i cook and i clean
for the money to be made wherever uncle sam has been

my love i miss you so
and i've been longing for our home and dreaming of the snow
our girl begun to speak
and i'm terrified to think what she will ever say of me



fifteen days i've been riding this train and i feel like the end is near
at least been eight since i've seen a drop of rain and i can't even make a tear



name, my name is joe
and i come from down in the valley , down in the valley below
age, don't really know
but i've been older than most and younger than some i've known
