Johnny Has Gone

Line
Melody - Seq. by Ron Clarke
Line

With fife and drum he marched away
He would not heed what I did say
He'll not come back for many a day
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
Chorus:
Shule, shule, shule shule agra
Sure, ah sure, and he loves me
When he comes back we'll married be
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
2. I'll go up on Portland Hill
And there I'll sit and cry my fill
And every tear should turn a mill
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
Chorus:

3. I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel
I'll sell my flax and spinning wheel
To buy my love a sword of steel
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
Chorus:

4. I'll dye my petticoats crimson red
Through the world I'll beg my bread
I'll find my love alive or dead
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
Chorus:
