Chorus.—Yo ! ho ! yo ! ho ! yo ! ho! ho ! ho ! ho ! ho ! ho I He is my only joy, He is the darling1 of my heart, My Southern soldier boy.
When Bob comes home from war's alarms,
We start anew in life, I'll give myself right up to him,
A dutiful, loving wife. I'll try my best to please my dear
For he is my only joy ; He is the darling of my heart
My Southern soldier boy.
Chorus.—Yo ! ho ! yo ! ho ! yo ! ho ! ho ! ho ! ho ! ho ! ho ! He is my only joy, He is the darling of m}^ heart, My Southern soldier boy.
Oh! if in battle he was slain,
I am sure that I should die, But I am sure he'll come again
And cheer my weeping eye; But should he. fall in this our glorious cause,
He still would be my joy For many a sweetheart mourns the loss,
Of a Southern soldier boy.
Chorus.—Yo! ho ! yo ! ho ! yo ! ho! ho! ho! ho ! ho ! ho ! ho! I'd grieve to loose my joy, But many a sweetheart mourns the loss Of a Southern soldier boy.
