Subject: RE: Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier
There are five (count 'em, FIVE) versions of this song in the database [search under SHULARN* ]. There are a few tidbits of information with the song texts, but not much. This is a song that has always puzzled me, too. There's gotta be a good story behind it. Anybody know?
