oh i wish i were on yonder hill
it's there i'd sit and cry my fill
'til every tear would turn a mill
my johnny's gone for a soldier

well, johnny, my love, he went away
he would not heed what i did say
he won't be back for many's a day
my johnny's gone for a soldier

chorus:
shule, shule, shule a gra
oh shule, oh shule and he loves me
when he comes back, he will marry me
my johnny, he has gone for a soldier

i'll sell my rack, i'll sell my reel
i'll sell my only spinning wheel
and buy my love a sword of steel
my johnny's gone for a soldier

i'll dye my petticoat, i'll dye it red
around the world i'll bake my bread
'til i find my love alive or dead
my johnny, he has gone for a soldier

(chorus)

but now my love, he has gone to france
to try his fortune to advance
if he returns, it is but a chance
my johnny, he has gone for a soldier

(chorus)

i wish, i wish, i wish in vain
i wish i had my heart again
'tis gladly i would not complain
my johnny, he has gone for a soldier

(chorus twice)

my johnny, he has gone for a soldier
