When Johnny Comes Marching Home.

When Johnny comes marching home again;

We’ll give him a hearty welcome then:

The men will cheer, the boys will shout,
The ladies they will all turn out,

The old church bell will peal with joy;

To welcome home our darling boy;

The villiage lads and lassies say
With roses they will strew the way,—

Get ready for the jubilee:

We’ll give the hero three times three;

The laurel wreath is ready now,—
To place upon his loyal brow—

Let love and friendship on that day—

Their choicest treasures then display:

And let each one perform some part,
To fill with joy the warriors heart,
