1966 August 26: New York RCA
She's leaving
Folks are feeling so low
They're grieving
And they're consoling poor Joe

Gonna miss her song
Oh Lord gonna miss her smiles
She'll be travelling
All along that last long mile

Cos they're sighing
With all their troubles and woes
They're crying cos they all loved her
This gal from Joe's

She's leaving
And folks are feeling so low
God they're grieving
And they're trying to console poor Joe

They're gonna miss her song
Yeah they're gonna miss her smile yeah
She'll be travelling
All alone that last long mile by herself

So they're sighing
And they're crying
With all their troubles and woes
Lord they're crying

Cos they all loved her
This gal from Joe's
They loved her
They understood her

And they loved her
This gal from Joe's
Yes Lord
This gal from Joe's
