Lyrics
Asleep at the Hotel Josephine
He was awakened by a womans scream
Found her lying there in the hallway

Unable to save her life
The night clerk saw him with the knife
But she kissed his hand as she passed away.

Somewhere between Atchison and Oskaloosa
While being taken to Lansing after his murder trial
He saw a woman in a hay field riding an appaloosa
Wearing nothing but a length of rope and a great big smile.

On death row at the Kansas pen
Sittin' on that worn out bed
Watchin' for the break of day.

The chaplain told him to repent
he screamed that he was innocent.
As the prison guards hauled him away.

Somewhere between Atchison and Oskaloosa
Being taken to Lansing after his murder trial
He saw a woman in a hay field riding an appaloosa
Wearing nothing but a length of rope and a great big smile.

The 3rd Psalm from a man in black
Then the hangman sprung the trap
Instead of feeling his neck snap
He landed on that horses back
And as they rode together to the promised land
Only then did he understand
That the woman who's life he tried save
Was the same one on that horse that day.


Somewhere between Atchison and Oskaloosa
Being taken to Lansing after his murder trial
He saw a woman in a hay field riding an appaloosa
Wearing nothing but a length of rope and a great big smile.
Wearing nothing but a broken rope.

Another good story!
Like this one best of all I think. Really like the chord progression here. Very moody.

Be well!

Thanks.
Once I found a rhyme for ' Oskaloosa' it kind of grew from there.

Storytelling folk
Very clean sound! Nothing but the singer, guitar and me which makes for an intimate performance of such a chilling tale. Well performed.
