Hey Joe I heard you shot your woman down You shot her down, now

Well, they blew up the chicken man in Philly last night
Now they blew up his house too
Down on the boardwalk, they're getting ready for a fight
Gonna see what them racket boys can do

...this one's a bit of a teaser...does the song tell about a crime being considered, or prompt the listener to consider that a crime is going to be commited?
