Song Description

Soldiers coming home from war and the Joy we feel when our boys come home. But what we don't see is all the hidden damage war does to the bodies and minds of our young people.

Story Behind the Song

I felt that this was a way for me to say war is never good, it takes the best of our young people and they have a chance of never coming home to family and joy, and others to damage we can see and don't see. Not just then but now as well.

Lyrics

Johnny Comes Marching Home
Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya
When Johnny comes marching home again, Hoorah! Hoorah!
When Johnny comes marching home again, Hoorah! Hoorah!
The laurel wreath is ready now to place upon his loyal brow,
we'll all be glad when Johnny comes marching home.

With your drums and guns and guns and drums hurroo! hurroo!
With your drums and guns and guns and drums hurroo! hurroo!
With your drums and guns and guns and grums, the enemy nearly slew ya,
Oh! my darling dear you look so queer,
Johnny I hardly knew ya!

Where are your eyes that were so mild?, hurroo! hurroo!
Where are your eyes that were so mild?, hurroo! hurroo!
Where are your eyes that were so mild, when my poor heart you so begiled
why do you run from me and the child?
Johnny I hardly knew ya!

Where are your legs that use to run? hurroo! hurroo!
Where are your legs that use to run? hurroo! hurroo!
Where are your legs that use to run, when you went for to carry a gun
indeed your dancing days are done.
Johnny I hardly knew ya!

They're rolling out the guns again, hurroo! hurroo!
They're rolling out the guns again, hurroo! hurroo!
They're rolling out the guns again but they'll never take our sons again
no they'll never take our sons again.
Johnny I'm swearin' to ya!

When Johnny comes marching home again Hoorah! Hoorah!
When Johnny comes marching home again
When Johnny comes marching home again Hoorah! Hoorah!
When Johnny comes marching home
The laurel wreath is ready now to place upon his loyal brow,
The laurel wreath is ready now
we'll all be glad when Johnny comes marching home
we'll all be glad
When Johnny comes marching home.
