Oh! I Wish This War Was Over

H.DE MARSAN DEALER IN SONGS TOY BOOKS & CO. No. 54 CHATHAM. NY.

Oh! I wish this war was over.

My Johnny’s in the army,
And never has been slain;
And, once, he came to see me,
But he went back again;
And often have I missed him,
And sighed for him to come;
Oh! I wish this war was over,
And my Johnny would come home!

They say he has been wounded,
And many ’round him fell:
But Johnny wrote a letter,
And said that he was well;
He told me that he loved me,
No matter where he’d roam. .
Oh! I wish this war was over,
And my Johnny would come home!

The days are long and weary,
The nights are lone and drear:
And, oh! I get so lonely,
Without my Johnny near!
I’ll try and be contented,
And wait for him to come;
Oh! I wish this war was over,
And my Johnny would come home!

Oh! won’t the girls be happy,
When all the boys are free,
And peace is in the Country,
Our sweet-hearts then to see!. .
Oh! won’t I run to meet him,
No more from me to roam!. . .
Oh! I wish this war was over,
And my Johnny would come home!
