    Joanne track listing

    "Joanne" or "Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?)" is a title track by Lady Gaga from her fifth studio album, Joanne written by Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson and produced by Ronson and Bloodpop. The song is a down-tempo country ballad and a tribute to Gaga's deceased paternal aunt Joanne Germanotta. The song was released as a single in Italy on December 22, 2017. A reworked piano version of the song was released worldwide as the final single from the album on January 26, 2018.

    Background

    The song pays tribute to Gaga's aunt, who died due lupus at the age of 19. She passed away before Gaga was born, however she often claims that her paternal aunt is an important figure in her life and also an inspiration for the entire album.

    Gaga said: “I realized my father's sister Joanne, who'd died at 19, had instilled her spirit in me. She was a painter and a poet – and I had a spiritual vision I had to finish her business."

    Gaga has called the song "the true heart and soul of the record." Joanne is also one of Gaga’s middle names.

    Lyrics

    Take my hand, stay Joanne
    Heaven’s not
    Ready for you
    Every part
    Of my aching heart
    Needs you more
    Than the angels do

    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?
    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?

    If you could
    I know that you’d stay
    We both know
    Things don’t work that way
    I promised I
    Wouldn’t say goodbye
    So I grin
    And my voice gets thin

    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?
    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?

    Honestly, I know where you’re goin’
    And baby, you’re just movin’ on
    And I’ll still love you even if I can’t
    See you anymore
    Can’t wait to see you soar

    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?
    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?

    Take my hand, stay Joanne
    Heaven’s not
    Ready for you
    Every part
    Of my aching heart
    Needs you more
    Than the angels do

    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?
    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?

    If you could
    I know that you’d stay
    We both know
    Things don’t work that way
    I promised I
    Wouldn’t say goodbye
    So I grin
    And my voice gets thin

    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?
    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?

    Honestly, I know where you’re goin’
    And baby, you’re just movin’ on
    And I’ll still love you even if I can’t
    See you anymore
    Can’t wait to see you soar

    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?
    Girl
    Where do you think you’re goin’?
    Where do you think you’re goin’
    Goin’, girl?
