from SHOWDOWN by Dirtwire



This is a good time bluesy backbeat driven tune featuring Evan Fraser’s harmonica and David Satori and Mark Reveley’s slide banjos. “Dirty Joe” channels the spirits of the low downtrodden ramblers of this world as he raps about shotguns, empty traincars. This is low down dirty Dirtwire cookin up shishkabobs in the junkyard.


Dirty Shishkabobs on your right side
oh don’t you realize he’s a diseased orangoutang.
He spits on the floor and My Mama said don't do that Donny don’t do that. rip rip get your shotgun down down the horse bread down on the jam baby. Dont you say what you want to say once you get down to dirty joe town now.

Work oh oh all the day long
cause you dont know what your going to get
when your sloppy joe dont know
we rock the state
don’t bother to rock your hate
He slipped through the doggy door
Took to the streets and flipped it slow
Its getting International we paid it 40 years ago
but you don’t know my momma say
Ya got that rebel look not time to tushy tush
my momma say
