The Kingston Trio Ė Run Joe
A folk gem by the Kingston Trio, couldn't find the lyrics anywhere online so I wrote it 
down by ear. Since it's sung in an accent, I couldn't get all the words clear. Feel free 
to comment for any suggestions on the lyrics.

G                 D
Moe and Joe run a country store
G                D        G
Telling fat on behind the door
G                D
That ram more as Joe run out
G                 D       G
Running more he begins to shout

Chorus:
G                  D
Run Joe, thereís a man at the door, run
G              D
Joe, the money wonít let me go run
G           C
Joe, run as fast as you can, run
D                        G
Joe, policeís holding me hand
