"It ain't that in their hearts they're bad. They comfort you, some even try
They nurse you when you're ill of health, They bury you when you go and die
It ain't that in their hearts they're bad, They'd stick by you if they could,
But that's just bullshit...People just ain't no good"

("People Ain't No Good", 1998)

Hey Joe, where you going with that gun in your hand? Hey Joe, dove vai con quella pistola in mano?
Hey Joe, where you going with that gun in your hand? Hey Joe, dove vai con quella pistola in mano?
I'm gonna shoot my baby, I caught her messin round with another man Sto per sparare alla mia ragazza, l'ho trovata che se la faceva con un altro
Hey Joe, I heard you shot your baby down Hey Joe, ho sentito che hai sparato alla tua ragazza
Hey Joe, I heard you shot your baby down Hey Joe, ho sentito che hai sparato alla tua ragazza
Yes I did I shot her, I went and put her in the ground Sì, sono andato e l'ho fatta secca
Hey Joe, where you gonna run to now? Hey Joe, dove te ne scapperai ora?
Hey Joe, where you gonna run to now? Hey Joe, dove te ne scapperai ora?
I'm heading way down South where I can be free A sud di qui, per essere libero
I'm heading Mexico way, no hangman's about to put a leash around me In Messico, dove nessun boia mi metterà un cappio al collo
