When Johnny comes marching home again,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah,

We’ll give him a hearty welcome then,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah;

The men will cheer, the boys will shout,
The ladies, they will all turn out
Chorus:
And we’ll all feel gay,
When Johnny comes marching home.
Get ready for the Jubilee,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah,

We’ll give the hero three times three,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah,

The laurel wreath is ready now,
To place upon his loyal brow,
Chorus:
And we’ll all feel gay,
When Johnny comes marching home.

The old church bell will peal with joy,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah,

To welcome home our darling boy,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah;

The village lads and lassies say,
With roses they will strew the way,
Chorus:
And we’ll all feel gay,
When Johnny comes marching home.
Let love and friendship on that day,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah,

Their choicest treasures then display,
Chorus:
Hurrah, Hurrah,

And let each one perform some part,
To fill with joy the warriors heart,
Chorus:
And we’ll all feel gay,
When Johnny comes marching home.
