Lyrics

When Johnny comes marching home again,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer and the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Get ready for the Jubilee,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

In 1861 hurrah! hurrah!
That was when the war begun hurrah, hurrah
In 1862, both sides were falling, too
And we’ll all drink stone wine when Johnny comes marching home

In 1863 hurrah! Hurrah!
Old Abe he ended slavery Hurrah! Hurrah!
In 1863 old Abe he ended slavery
And we’ll all drink stone wine when Johnny comes marching home

In 1864 hurrah! Hurrah!
Abe called for 500,000 more hurrah! Hurrah!
In 1865 they all talked rebellion, strife
And we’ll all drink stone wine when Johnny comes marching home
