Theyґll send him to the war-inspector
Iґll be back tomorrow said he
When I will return again
Weґll go to Mexico
They sent you to the war-inspector
I have missed you Johnny said she
Great to know you by my side
Iґll never let you go
Theyґll send him to the regiment
Iґll be back tomorrow said he
When I will return again
Weґll got to Mexico
They sent you to the regiment
I have missed you Johnny said she
Great to know you by my side
Iґll never let you go
Theyґll send him to the battlefield
Iґll be back tomorrow said he
When I will return again
Youґll never let me go
They sent you to the battlefield
I have missed you Johnny said she
Great to know you by my side
In your graveyard down below
In the name of freedom
Where murdering cannons roar
Excellent diversion
Johnny-boy went to the war
