Golden Earring - buddy joe songtekst
Over deze songtekst:
Een single van Golden Earring uit hun album op de vooravond van hun grote doorbraak. Het album zelf doet het wat minder, maar Buddy Joe wordt een grote hit. Buddy Joe komt uit in juni 1972, het jaar dat de fut bijna uit Golden Earring is omdat de doorbraak niet wil lukken. In datzelfde jaar 1972 mogen ze het voorprogramma doen van The Who en een jaar later breken ze toch door met Radar Love.
Let me tell you about Buddy Joe, when he came down from Mexico With his pockets full of gold, with his pockets full of gold Have you something to declare, are you sure there is nothing there Cause if there is, don't say, you've not been told You've not been told Oh Buddy Joe, what have they done with the gold Oh Buddy Joe, what have they done with the gold What have they done with the gold Well, I don't really know Well Buddy Joe searched all his life, through Mexico all the riversides Not for the money but for the gold, he needs to hold Well Buddy Joe proud as he was, couldn't stand all the fuss When they got to all his gold, he was ready to go, he was ready to go Oh Buddy Joe, what have they done with the gold Oh Buddy Joe, what have they done with the gold What have you done with the gold Well, I don't really know Well you'll understand he did not stand a chance everybody was shouting commands when Buddy Joe split in a hurry he was ready to be buried, he was ready to be buried Oh Buddy Joe what have they done with the gold.
