Pete Seeger – When Johnny Comes Marching Home lyrics
When Johnny comes marching home again, Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer, the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
That joyful day when Johnny comes marching home
Get ready for the Jubilee, Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll celebrate the victory, Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll all join in the big parade
And let the soldier have his day
That joyful day when Johnny comes marching home
America, America, when Johnny comes marching home
America, America, when Johnny comes marching home
We'll sound the horns and beat the drums
Salute them for a job well done
That joyful day when Johnny comes marching home

The old church bell will ring with joy, Hurrah! Hurrah!
To welcome home our girls and boys, Hurrah! Hurrah!
Cause Janey too has done her best
She's fought as hard as all the rest
She'll march along when Johnny comes marching home

When Johnny comes marching home again, Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer, the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
That joyful day when Johnny comes marching home
Twill be so good to have 'em home
They've been so far and gone so long
What a joyful day when Johnny comes marching home

America, America, when Johnny comes marching home
America, America, when Janey comes marching home
We'll sound the horns and beat the drums
Salute them for a job well done
That joyful day when Johnny comes marching home
That joyful day when Johnny comes marching home
