josephine

I met a girl named Josephine today.  She reminded me of the old army cadence we used to sing about a girl named Josephine and it went something like this:

Hey Hey Josephine
How do you do
Do you remember me baby
Like I remember you

We used to meet out yonder
Behind your old man’s barn
And every time it rained
You used to call my name

Hey Hey Josephine
How do you do
Do you remember me baby
Like I remember you

We used to meet out yonder
Behind the railroad tracks
And every time you came
You used to call my name

There are probably a hundred different versions of this cadence.  I first learned it at Fort Knox, Kentucky during the summer of 1991 while on loan from West Point, doing my summer training as a drill cadet.
