Josie

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


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, the day is near

The meadows they are bursting
The yellow corn lies in your hand
And with the night comes sorrow
As the tide of dawn sleeps on the land

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

I love you, darling Josie
The trees of pine they grow so tall
How come you came 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, the day is near

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

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

God bless you, darling Josie
With your sparklin' eyes so bright and clear
Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, have no fear

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, the day is near

Josie (Live In Japan Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance, the day is near

I love you, darling Josie
And the trees of pine they grow so tall
How come you came to love me
When you didn't love me at all?

Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, won't you have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance, the day is near

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

Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, don't you have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance, the day is near

Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, don't you have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance, the day is near

Thank you, thanks very much.

Josie (Greatest Hits Live: Vancouver 1986 Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance, the day is near

Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance, the day is near

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

Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
A-give me one more chance, the day is near

Well, my Josie looks a child now
As she lies here on my breast
In the night I think about her
And in the day I get no rest

Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
A-give me one more chance, the day is near

The meadows they are bursting
The yellow corn lies in your hand
And with the night comes sorrow
As the tide of dawn sleeps on the land

Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
I won't fail you, don't you have no fear
Oh, Josie, I won't fail ya
Give me one more chance, the day is near

Thank you, thank you.
