JOSIE (Kris Kristofferson) Kris Kristofferson - 1971 I've been chasin' after Josie since the day I could run Even though I didn't know it at the time And I followed her from Texas till she found me undone Just a jump ahead of what I'd left behind She was proud of her young body as a body could be On her way to be a woman of the world And I still can see her smilin' as she gave it to me Lookin' like a lonesome little girl Josie, is it true that you've grown harder than your years Sellin' them your sadness on the street How much did you lose between the laughter and the tears Gettin' back the bitter for the sweet Well, she loved me back to livin' at a time I was lost With the closest thing to love I've ever known And she led me to some bridges I was burning to cross Then she went and burned some bridges of her own Now the road's a little colder every time that I leave For another empty place I've never been And I don't suppose it's likely that she's lookin' for me But someday I'll maybe chase her down again Josie, is it true that you've grown harder than your years Sellin' them your sadness on the street How much did you lose between the laughter and the tears Gettin' back the bitter for the sweet (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2012)
