I speak to you
Hope you'll understand
You made your son Joseph a dangerous man
He's gone to town
Got himself a gun
This could happen to every mother's son

I spoke with Joseph
His time has come
Vengeance is mine he said
Come join the fun
But he looked more like a Judas on the run
This could happen to every mother's son

Since I spoke to Joseph
He's gone into town
He killed six strong men
Before they shot him down
I hate to say it but it's only just begun
This could happen to every mother's son

Something to tell you
I think you should know
You sink to fast and you love to slow
But you do not feel that you're the only one
This could happen to every mother's son
Every mother's son
