  • 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 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. Writer/s: Bradley Joseph Corrigan, Chad Stokes Urmston, Peter Francis Heimbold
