Shule, shule, shule-a-roo
shule-a-rak-shak, shule-a-ba-ba-coo.
When I saw my Sally Babby Beal
come bibble in the boo shy Lorey.

Here I sit in Buttermilk Hill; who could blame me cry my fill.
Ev'ry tear would turn a mill, Johnny's gone for a soldier. (Refrain)

I sold my flax, I sold my wheel to buy my love a sword of steel;
so it in battle he might wield, Johnny's gone for a soldier.
Oh my baby, oh my love, gone the rainbow, gone the dove;
your father was my only love, Johnny's gone for a soldier. (Refrain)
