"Josie" as written by and Kris / Kristofferson....
Just got a letter from Josie this morning
had to read between the lines
She was sitting all alone, gazing through the window blinds
She folded up her hands and she was crying
Wearing that same old mournful smile
for an old love, God knows where

All the children, they laugh
at the old woman as she passes
with old fashioned clothes and tape-mended glasses

Josie, Josie, hold on for me
Come'in from California, to be with you, Josie
The world holds no love for a drift'in boy like me
But I'm travel'in fast on God's wind
to be with you, Josie

Remember the garden we used to walk to,
to put your troubled mind at ease?
Well it is gone now, to buildings
They even took the Ficus tree
Cinders take the place of fall'in leaves

We'd spend time out there talk'in
You know I'd love to fix you tea.
I can tell you, people, all the places I've got to see
But Josie, hold on please.

Josie, Josie, hold on for me
Come'in from California to be with you, Josie
The world holds no love for a drift'in boy like me
But I'm travel'in fast on God's wind
to be with you, Josie
