Joan Baez:Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye

Lyrics

With your guns and drums, and drums and guns, hurroo, hurroo
With your guns and drums, and drums and guns, hurroo, hurroo
With your guns and drums, and drums and guns
The enemy nearly slew ye
My darling dear, ye look so queer
Johnny, I hardly knew ye.

Where are your legs that used to run, hurroo, hurroo
Where are your legs that used to run, hurroo, hurroo
Where are your legs that used to run
Before you left to carry a gun
I fear your dancing days are done
Johnny, I hardly knew ye.

Where are the eyes that were so mild, hurroo, hurroo
Where are the eyes that were so mild, hurroo, hurroo
Where are the eyes that were so mild
When my heart you did beguile
And why did ye run from me and the child
Johnny, I hardly knew ye.

Ye haven't an arm, ye haven't a leg, hurroo, hurroo
Ye haven't an arm, ye haven't a leg, hurroo, hurroo
Ye haven't an arm, ye haven't a leg
Ye're an eyeless, boneless, chickenless egg
And ye'll have to be put with a bowl to beg
Johnny, I hardly knew ye.

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 won't take back our sons again
No they'll will never take back our sons again
Johnny, I'm swearing to ye.
