Lyrics

When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again - Written by Gilmore

 

When Johnny comes marching home again

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

We'll give him a mighty welcome then

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

The men will cheer and the boys will shot

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 lassies say

With roses they will strew the way,

And we'll all feel gay

When Johnny comes marching home

 

Get ready for the jubilee

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

We'll give the hero three times three

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

The laurel wreath 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 choices pleasures 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
