A Guy Named Joe
Recorded by Ernest Tubb
Written by Harlan Howard

G C D7
I stepped a-shore in Tokyo feeling kinda blue
G D7 G
For I was trying to forget a love that was untrue
C D7
When by my side I found a lad his dark eyes all aglow
G D7 G
He looked at me so hopefully and said is your name Joe

C G D7 G
For Joe's my daddy's name and he will soon come sailing cross the see
C A7 D7
He said he'd come back by and by and Joe would never lie
G D7 C D7
The warship took my dad away and mommy needs him so
G D7 G D7 G
And every night I hear her pray dear God where is my Joe

C D7
Somewhere back home a guy named Joe is probably sipping beer
G D7 G
Does he know how important he could be if he was here
C D7
Has he forgot this little lad who needs his daddy so
G D7 G
A promise made a debt unpaid they're waitin' for you Joe

C G D7 G
Yes Joe's his daddy's name and he will never sail across that sea
C A7 D7
A stranger in a foreign land he let his heart get out of hand
G C D7
A warship took his dad away and he's too young to know
G D7 G D7 G
That off across the ocean there's a million guys named Joe
