John Wesley Harding – Anonymous 1916 lyrics

I've lost my rifle and bayonet
I've lost my pull-through too
I've lost the socks that you sent me
That lasted the whole winter through
I've lost the razor that shaved me
I've lost my four-by-two
I've lost my hold all
And now I've got damn all
Since I've lost you.
