(On the record, those X/Y chords are almost certainly played as a standard X
chord on guitar, with the bass covering the Y note; the fingerings suggested
above are for anyone who wants to replicate the overall sound of those chords
on a single guitar. And, incidentally, Laura Nyro was using major triads
with the fourth in the bass when Don and Walt were still playing frat parties
at Bard.)

[Intro]
Fmaj7   F#7#9   Gmaj7   G#maj7/6

[Verse 1]
            Em7
We're gonna break out the hats and hooters when Josie comes home
We're gonna rev up the motorscooters
                 A/D     G/C
When Josie comes home to stay
            D/G         C/F
We're gonna park in the street
Em7
Sleep on the beach and make it
A7                          G/C   D/G C/F
Throw down the jam 'til the girls say when
Em7                  D/G           E/A         Em7
Lay down the law and break it when Josie comes home

[Chorus 1]
     C/F        F#7#9  B7#9#5    Em7   C/F
When Josie comes home         so good
          F#7#9        B7#9#5       Em7  A7
She's the pride of the neighborhood
          Am7  D7       Gmaj7 Cmaj7
She's the raw flame, the live wire
    F#7#9                      B7#9#5
She prays like a Roman with her eyes on fire

[Verse 2]
Jo who'd you love to scrapple, she'll never say no
Shine up the battle apple
We'll shake 'em all down tonight
We're gonna mix in the street
Strike at the stroke of midnight
Pick up what's left by daylight when Josie comes home

[Chorus 2]
When Josie comes home, so bad
She's the best friend we never had
She's the raw flame, the live wire
She prays like a Roman with her eyes on fire


[Instrumental]
(2:15 - 2:31)
