When Johnny comes marching home again, Hurrah, hurrah
       Am          /     /        /      C  /    E  /
We'll give him a hearty welcome then Hurrah, hurrah
     Am        /         Dm         /        Am     /         E        /
The men will cheer, the boys will shout the ladies they will all turn out
          Am    G   Am   E   Am           E       Am  /
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home

The old church bell will peal with joy
Hurrah, hurrah,
To welcome home our darling boy
Hurrah, hurrah
The village lads and lassies say
With roses they will strew the way
And we'll all feel gay when
Johnny comes marching home.

Get ready for the Jubilee
We'll give the hero three times three
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow ...

Let love and friends on that day
Their choicest treasures then display
And let each one perform some part
To fill with joy each warrior's heart ...
