Poor Old Joe

Poor Old Joe

Traditional - Lyrics from Iron Men & Wooden Ships, by Frank Shay


Old Joe is dead and gone to hell,
Oh, we say so, and we hope so;
Old Joe is dead and gone to hell.
Oh, poor old Joe!

He's as dead as a nail in the lamp-room door,
Oh, we say so, and we hope so;
He's as dead as a nail in the lamp-room door.
Oh, poor old Joe!

He won't come hazing us no more,
Oh, we say so, and we hope so;
He won't come hazing us no more,
Oh, poor old Joe!
