Joey + Rory - Josephine Lyrics


Iím writing this letter, my darling, from high on the hill
Weíve been marching ten days and weíre just outside Hopkinsville
Itís been snowing all night and we ainít got no more kerosene
Itís colder than hell, hope youíre doiní well, Josephine

Thereís a fever in camp and our boys are too sick to fight
We done lost old Calvin, Beaver wonít make it through the night
I hope I heard the captain say itís the worst heís ever seen
Iím losiní some weight but Iím still standiní up straight, Josephine

Tell my children I miss Ďem and wigh I could kiss Ďem once more
Bet theyíve grown a foot since they waved me goodbye at the door
Tell mama and daddy Iím alright and just want one more thing
I love you, I love you, I love you, Josephine

Thereís three thousand union troops camped at the river below
Thereís six hundreds of us, least there was two nights ago
When Erwin deserted they hung him down by the tree
God Iím so scared, keep me in your prayers, Josephine

Well the orders come down, weíll attack tonight at nightfall
If we can stop them right here we can win this war once and for all
You know, I killed a union boy last week, bet he wasnít fourteen
He looked just like our son, forgive me for what Iíve done, Josephine

Tell my children I miss Ďem and wigh I could kiss Ďem once more
Bet theyíve grown a foot since they waved me goodbye at the door
Tell mama and daddy Iím alright and just want one more thing
I love you, I love you, I love you, Josephine

And lastly my darling, in case I should be killed
Donít breathe me too long, promise me that you will
Marry another, donít let him treat our babies mean
When heís holding you, would you think of me too, Josephine?

Tell my babies I miss Ďem and wigh I could kiss Ďem once more
Bet theyíve grown a foot since they waved me goodbye at the door
Tell mama and daddy Iím alright and just want one more thing
I love you, I love you, I love you, Josephine

I love you, I love you, I love you, Josephine
