Ill go back to St. Johnsberry to breathe the air That's where I met a girl called Josephine They call her Josephine the Fair She had Manch Vegas written across her back She just cut off all her hair We shared a blanket by the tracks in Lebanon New Hampshire I have a scent a bed of dreams But I never felt so awake in my life 'Til I noticed my jacket was gone and so was Josephine
Josephine Josephine Josephine How come you ain't no where to be seen Josephine Josephine Josephine How come how come Josephine?
Soon after she musta had a change of heart But as the train was catching up speed Like seeing the moon in the middle of the day I felt like my feet were just gonna float away When I heard her yelling "Chicoree" She was takin' off her jacket as she ran I said forget the jacket just gimme your hand I'm gettin' off at the first stop up in Canada I can make you happy there She said it would be a while I said I'll wait She said it could be a while I said I'll wait Keep the jacket just bring it to me someday
Josephine Josephine Josephine How come you ain't nowhere to be seen Josephine Josephine Josephine How come how come Josephine?
She had caught in the crowd With the rain so loud That you couldn't hear your up and down Heart beat now Did you come back to New Hampshire to stay? Did they catch you at the border And send you to back down? Should I give up and stop lookin' around But I'm still waitin' for this day
Josephine Josephine Josephine How come you aint nowerhe to be seen? Josephine Josephine Josephine How come how come Josephine
Josephine the fair Josephine the fair Josephine the fair Josephine the fair.

"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
