The word "joed" is a word I use frequently to describe my feeling tired or exhausted. As a child, I used to hear my grandfather say "I feel joed" before he would sit down for a respite or turn in; however, I'm not certain why the word joed means tired. Has anyone the least notion why "joed" means tired?
This doesn't directly answer your question, but the Historical Dictionary of American Slang volume II has an entry:
jo v. 1. to spoil; (also) to exhaust. *ca*1800 in Dolph Sound Off! 503: As to Saratog' he came, thinking how to jo the game. 1932 AS VII (June) 333: Joed—tired; exhausted.
I'm not sure I agree that those citations are the same word, however, especially as the citation evidence is so sparse. AS is an American Speech article, which is about John Hopkins University language.
