When Johnny comes marching home again...harro...harro
Give him a hearty welcome then...harro...harro
All the boys will sing and the girls will shout
And the ladies they will all turn out

Get away...get away
I can't use you no more
Don't stand at my windows
Don't knock at my door
Cause we're trying to pretend
There was never a war
And you're just a constant reminder

When you called us we answered
Where you sent us we went
What you asked us we did
Now that's not what you meant
We believed when you told us
About the right and the wrong
But now we're back home
Where we thought we belonged
This is our welcome home song

Get away...get away
I can't use you no more
Don't stand at my windows
Don't knock at my door
Cause we're trying to pretend
There was never a war
And you're just a constant reminder

You pass us each day
On the streets where you lay
You throw us a quarter
Than you hurry away
Leavin' us bleeding right here where we fall
You leave us the shame and the blame for it all
Without even our names on a wall

Get away...get away
I can't use you no more
Don't stand at our windows
Don't knock at our door
Cause we're trying to pretend
There was never a war
And you're just a constant reminder
If there's ever a war
Why we'll call you for sure
But now you're just a constant reminder
