When Johnny Comes Marching Home
(Louis Lambert [pen name for Patrick Gilmore])

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
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
We'll give the hero three times three
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow

Let love and friends    on that day
Their choicest treasures then display
And let each one perform some part
To fill with joy each warrior's heart.
