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                                   D
I didn't think nobody could be that mean
D
So I took me out walking down the railroad track
G
I was a-gonna go down to that little old shack
         A                                         D
And just find out if all them things I'd heard was true

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

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

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

He said what you doing snooping 'round my place
    G
And 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
    A                       D
And he said you can call me Joshua

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

D
We talked 'til the sun was clean out of sight
    G
And we still talking when it come daylight
    A
And there was just so much we had to say hey
D
I'd spent my life in an orphan's home
    G
And just like him I was all alone
   A                                D
So I said yeah when he asked if I'd stay

Oh we grew closer as time went on
         G
And that 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
     A                             D
It's plenty good enough for me and Joshua

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

A          G D
Me and Joshua
