Lyrics

Well a good ways down the railroad track There was this little old rundown shack And in it lived a man I'd never seen Folks said he was a mean and a vicious man And you better not set foot on his land I didn't think nobody could be that mean So I took me out walking down the railroad track I was a-gonna go down to that little old shack And just find out if all them things I'd heard was true There was a big black dog laying out in the yard And it growled at me and I swallowed hard And I heard somebody say well who are you Oh and there he stood in the door of that shack His beard and his hair was long and black And he was the biggest man I'd ever seen When he spoke his voice was low and deep But he just didn't frighten me 'Cause somehow I just knew he wasn't mean He said what you doing snooping 'round my place And I saw a smile come across his face So I smiled back and I told him who I was He said come on in and pull you up a chair You might as well since you already here And he said you can call me Joshua Joshua Joshua Whatcha doing living here all alone Joshua Joshua Ain't you got nobody to call your own No no no no

We talked 'til the sun was clean out of sight And we still talking when it come daylight And there was just so much we had to say hey I'd spent my life in an orphan's home And just like him I was all alone So I said yeah when he asked if I'd stay Oh we grew closer as time went on And that little old shack it was a happy home And we just couldn't help but fall in love That big black dog and that little old shack Sitting down by the railroad track It's plenty good enough for me and Joshua Joshua Joshua Why you're just what I've been looking for Joshua Joshua You ain't gonna be lonesome anymore No no Yodel-a-he-ho Me and Joshua Me and Joshua Me and Joshua yeah yeah Me and Joshua
