CHORUS
Schule schule schule aroon
Sure, as sure as he loves me
He'll come back and marry me
Johnny has gone for a soldier

I would I were on yonder hill
It's there I'd sit and cry my fill
And every tear would turn a mill
Johnny has gone for a soldier.


I'll sell my rod, I'll sell my reel,
I'll sell my only spinning wheel,
To buy my love a sword of steel,
Johnny has gone for a soldier.


I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
And it's round the world I'll beg for bread
Until my parents would wish me dead
Johnny has gone for a soldier.


And now my love has gone to France
To try his fortune to advance
If he ever comes back 'tis but a chance
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
