"When Johnny Comes Marchin‘ Home" as written by and Stuart/traditional....
When Johnny comes marchin‘ home again, hooray, hooray
We’ll give him a hearty welcome then, hooray, hooray
All the men will cheer and the boys will shout
The girls dress up and they‘ll all turn out
And we’ll all feel gay when Johnny comes marchin‘ home

Get ready for the jubilee, horray, hooray
He’ll get three cheers from you and me, hooray, hooray
Uncle Sam will prove he’s still the champ,
We‘ll close up shop and break up camp
And we’ll all feel gay when Johnny comes marchin‘ home...!

    General CommentThis song is about a guy returning home from war, while this recording would be around the WWII eara, this song is much older than that though I am not sure how much so, great song!
