lyrics

She lived in a cabin, newpaper walls,
She walked through the canyons, corralled the hogs,
She fought the local farmers for water rights,
And finally lost the strength to pursue the fight.

Oh, Josie, what ever happened to you?
We used to skip together on the way to school.
Oh, Josie, it doesn't have to be this way.
I miss my sister every day.

The people are cold, but the desert is warm.
We fought three wars while she worked on the farm.
The loneliness made her heart grow fond,
Of the warm embrace from the canyon arms.

Down a sun-bleached path where no one knows,
She heard the faint murmur of the painter's ghost.
She brewed mint tea in the evening light,
And dreamed the desert stars were fireflies.

Oh, Josie, before I ever told those lies,
We used to skip stones and catch fireflies.
Oh, Josie, it doesn't have to be this way.
I miss my sister every day.
