Mama told her baby girl take it real slow
He's waiting in the car
Thus are the dreams of an average Jane
On a tank of dreams
That fate's got cards that it don't want to show, and
That boy's just a walkaway Joe
Destined to deceive her
She's gonna know it in a matter of time

He pulls into a station and he robs it clean
She only wanted love didn't bargain for this
She's only seventeen and there ain't no reasoning

Born to be a leaver tell you from the word go
He's the wrong kind of paradise
That boy's just a walkaway Joe
Somewhere in a roadside motel room
And reaches for his arms
For the cold hard truth revealed what it had known
That boy's just a walk away Joe
Destined to deceive her
But it was just another lesson in life

All he was was a walkaway Joe
(Walkaway Joe)
