WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME.
WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME. Sung by Archy Hughes.
When Johnny comes marching1 home again,
Hurrah! hurrah! We'll give him a hearty welcome then,
Hurrah 1 hurrah I. The men will cheer, the boys will shout, The ladies they will all turn out,
And we'll all feel gay, When Johnny comes marching home.
The old church-bell will peal with joy,
Hurrah! hurrah! To welcome home our darling boy,
Hurrah! hurrah! The village lads and lasses say With roses they will strew the way ;
vAnd we'll all feel gay, When Johnny comes marching home.
Get ready for the jubilee,
Hurrah I hurrah! We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! hurrah I The laurel-breath is ready now To place upon his loyal brow; ,
And we'll all feel gay, When Johnny comes marching home.
Let love and friendship, on that day,
Hurrah! hurrah! Their choicest treasures then display,
Hurrah! hurrah! And let each one perform some part To fill with joy the warrior's heart;
And we'll all feel gay, When Johnny comes marching home. 3*
