Johnson Boys 2

Have you heard the many a story,
Told by old and young with joy,
About the many deeds of daring
That was done by the Johnson boys ?

cho: Hop up, pretty girls, don't be afraid (2x)

The Johnson boys were boys of honor,
They knew how to court the maids,
They knew how to hug and kiss them,
Hop up, pretty girls, don't be afraid

They were lads of skill and courage
And their sight was very far
And they joined their country's service
In that awful Civil War,

They were scouts in the rebel's army
And were known far and wide
When the Yankees saw them coming
They throw down their guns and hide.
