Johnny Has Gone

Lidové písně - Anglické



This song, and the tune, are both closely related to
Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier, and 
Sweet William, and
Butternut Hill.


    With fife and drum he marched away
    He would not heed what I did say
    He'll not come back for many a day
    Johnny has gone for a soldier.


    Chorus:
         Shule, shule, shule shule agra
         Sure, ah sure, and he loves me
         When he comes back we'll married be
         Johnny has gone for a soldier.


    I'll go up on Portland Hill
    And there I'll sit and cry my fill
    And every tear should turn a mill
    Johnny has gone for a soldier.


    Chorus:
         Shule, shule, shule shule agra
         Sure, ah sure, and he loves me
         When he comes back we'll married be
         Johnny has gone for a soldier.


    I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel
    I'll sell my flax and spinning wheel
    To buy my love a sword of steel
    Johnny has gone for a soldier.


    Chorus:
         Shule, shule, shule shule agra
         Sure, ah sure, and he loves me
         When he comes back we'll married be
         Johnny has gone for a soldier.


    I'll dye my petticoats crimson red
    Through the world I'll beg my bread
    I'll find my love alive or dead
    Johnny has gone for a soldier.


    Chorus:
         Shule, shule, shule shule agra
         Sure, ah sure, and he loves me
         When he comes back we'll married be
         Johnny has gone for a soldier.
