about

A rocky blues song that tells a story about a guy who spends most of his money on materialistic things and neglects everything else around him, including himself.

lyrics

Smokey joe drove a cadillac
a man who lived beyond his means
he ate best when he got paid
rest of the week he lived on beans
He lived his life in a country shack
he built out of wood and weed
in the swamplands down in new orleans

Thou he never had a lot
he kept his car pristine
diamond studded hubcaps
a solid platinum steering wheel
He spent nearly every cent he got
on his sexy love machine
dressed in rags and smelt a lot
and he never looked the scene

Smokey joe never washed a lot
yet he kept his car real clean
girls never went near him
they never knew where he had been
he never really gave a toss
even his hair was full of fleas
he was a genuine example of a disease

(Break)

Then smokey joe met country sue
she was the girl of all his dreams
she used to bring him steak pie
and sew the holes up in his jeans
She gave him more than bread and water
and made him eat less beans
now he's the king
now he's the king
of new orleans
He's the king of new orleans
