Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Joshua  Dolly Parton

[D]Well a good ways down the railroad track
[G]There was this little old rundown shack
[A]And in it lived a man I'd never seen
[D]Folks said he was a mean and a vicious man
[G]And you better not set foot on his land
[A]I didn't think nobody could be that [D]mean
[D]So I took me out walking down the railroad track
[G]I was a-gonna go down to that little old shack
And just [A]find out if all them things I'd heard was [D]true

There was a big black dog laying out in the yard
And it [G]growled at me and I swallowed hard
And I [A]heard somebody say well who are [D]you

Oh and there he stood in the door of that shack
His [G]beard and his hair was long and black
And [A]he was the biggest man I'd ever [D]seen

When he spoke his voice was low and deep
But [G]he just didn't frighten me
'Cause [A]somehow I just knew he wasn't [D]mean

He said what you doing snooping 'round my place
And [G]I saw a smile come across his face
[A]So I smiled back and I told him who I was
[D]He said come on in and pull you up a chair
[G]You might as well since you already here
And [A]he said you can call me [D]Joshua

[G]Joshua [D]Joshua
[A]Whatcha doing living here [D]all alone
[G]Joshua [D]Joshua
[A]Ain't you got nobody to [D]call your own
No [A]no no [D]no

[D]We talked 'til the sun was clean out of sight
And [G]we still talking when it come daylight
And [A]there was just so much we had to say hey
[D]I'd spent my life in an orphan's home
And [G]just like him I was all alone
So [A]I said yeah when he asked if I'd [D]stay
Oh we grew closer as time went on
And that [G]little old shack it was a happy home
[A]And we just couldn't help but fall in love
[D]That big black dog and that little old shack
[G]Sitting down by the railroad track
It's [A]plenty good enough for me and [D]Joshua

[G]Joshua [D]Joshua
Why [A]you're just what I've been [D]looking for
[G]Joshua [D]Joshua
[A]You ain't gonna be lonesome [D]anymore
[A]No no

[A]Me and Josh[G]ua[D]
Me and Joshua
Me and Joshua yeah yeah
Me and Joshua
