Josie

This song is by Donovan and appears…

Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you have no fear
Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance to be as near

The meadows they are bursting
The yellow corn is in your hands
And with the night comes sorrow
As the tide of dawn slips on the land

The long breezes are blowing
All down the sky into my face
I've a worried kind of feelin'
That my time has come and gone to waste

I love you darling Josie
The trees of pine they grow so tall
How can you come to love me
When you didn't love me at all

Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you have no fear
Josie I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance to be as near

My Josie looks a child now
As she lies beyond my breast
In the night I think about her
In the day I get no rest

I cut me a young pine cone
And gave it to the river deep
It sailed way by your window
Where you lay so long in sleep

God bless you darling Josie
With your sparkling eyes so bright and clear
Josie, I won't fail you have no fear
Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance to be as near
