Night Owl Lyr Req: Soldier, Soldier^^ (48) Lyr Add: SOLDIER JOHN 13 Sep 02


thanks for asking about the tune, kat. Wondering here if the tune I have for "Soldier John" is the same as kytrad's and/or Willa's for "Soldier, Soldier".

"SOLDIER JOHN" 1st verse and Chorus lyrics I learned are:

Soldier John, soldier John
Won't you marry me
How can I marry such a pretty little miss
When I've no shoes to wear

Chorus:
So up she jumped
And away she ran
Down to the market square
She bought the finest shoes you've seen
For Soldier John to wear.

(shoes, shirt, pants, coat, hat)

Last line of the song is:

"How can I marry such an ugly girl
With all these fine clothes on."
