Intro.:  D x 4 bars


     C
I'm writing this letter, my darling, from high on the hill
                                                           F
We've been marching ten days and we're just outside Hopkins-ville
           C                       C7                    F
It's been snowing all night and we ain't got no more kero-sene
     C                     F                     C
It's colder than hell, hope you're doin' well, Jo-sephine


          C
There's a fever in camp and our boys are too sick to fight
                                                         F
We done lost old Calvin, Beaver won't make it through the night
  C                            C7                       F    F/A
I hope I heard the captain say it's the worst he's ever seen
    C                                F                       C
I'm losin' some weight but I'm still standin' up straight, Jo-sephine


(Chorus)
        F
Tell my children I miss 'em and wish I could kiss 'em once more
    C                                                      F
Bet they've grown a foot since they waved me goodbye at the door
     F
Tell mama and daddy I'm alright and just want one more thing
  C                       F             C      C   F
I love you, I love you, I love you, Jose-phine


        C
There's three thousand union troops camped at the river below

There's six hundreds of us, least there was two nights (A)ago
     C                  C7               F
When Erwin deserted they hung him down by the tree
C                      F                       C
God I'm so scared, keep me in your prayers, Jo-sephine


          C
Well, the orders come down, we'll attack tonight at nightfall
                                                          F
If we can stop 'em right here we can win this war once and for all
          C                   C7                       F
You know, I killed a union boy last week, bet he wasn't fourteen
          C                     F                              C
He looked just like our son, for-give me for what I've done, Jo-sephine


(Chorus)
       F
Tell my children I miss 'em and wish I could kiss 'em once more
    C                                                      F
Bet they've grown a foot since they waved me goodbye at the door
    F
Tell mama and daddy I'm alright and just want one more thing
 C                       F              C
I love you, I love you, I love you, Jose-phine 


   C
And lastly my darling, in case I should be killed
                                              F
Don't breathe me too long, promise me that you will
C             C7                      F
Marry another, don't let him treat our babies mean
    C                           F                   C
When he's holding you, would you think of me too, Jo-sephine


(Chorus)
       F
Tell my baby I miss 'em and wish I could kiss 'em once more
   C                                                       F
Bet they've grown a foot since they waved me goodbye at the door
    F
Tell mama and daddy I'm alright and just want one more thing
 C                       F              C     F
I love you, I love you, I love you, Jose-phine 
 C                       F              C
I love you, I love you, I love you, Jose-phine
