Me, oh my, I loved him so, It broke my heart to see him go, And only time will heal my woe, 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. I sold my flax, I sold my my wheel, To buy my love a sword of steel, So it in battle, he may 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.
