Transposed for easier playing

Am    G      F          Am
Here I sit on Buttermilk Hill
C       Em       Am
Who can blame me, cry my fill
      C    E7         Am    F
And ev'ry tear would turn a mill,
Am       Em         Am
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

Am      E7    Am
Shule, Shule, Shule Aroon
C      Em    Am
Shule, Shule, Shule Aroon
    C    E7         Am    F
And ev'ry tear would turn a mill,
Am       Em         Am
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

With fife and drum he marched away
He would not heed what I did say
He'll not come back for many a day
Johnny has gone for a soldier.

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

I'll dye my dress, I'll dye it red,
And through the streets I'll beg for bread,
For the lad I love from me has fled,
Johnny has gone for a soldier.

Me, oh my, I loved him so,
Broke my heart to see him go
And only time will heal my woe,
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
