JOHNNY DOUGHBOY FOUND A ROSE IN IRELAND (Al Goodhart / Kay Twomey) Barry Wood - 1942 Dennis Day - 1942 Johnny Doughboy sailed away And it was his lucky day Even though the skies were grey above On that isle across the sea Johnny's making history With his Yankee Doodle arms of love Johnny Doughboy found a rose in Ireland Sure the fairest flower that Erin ever grew Oh, the Blarney in her talk Took him back to old New York Where his mother spoke the sweetest blarney too Johnny Doughboy found a rose in Ireland And she stole his heart with smilin' eyes of blue He said, "Darlin', 'tis my duty To make an American beauty Of a sweet Irish rose like you" (Instrumental Break) Johnny Doughboy found a rose in Ireland And she stole his heart with smilin' eyes of blue He said, "Darlin', 'tis my duty To make an American beauty Like my Dad did with Mother I'll do the same thing, too Of a sweet Irish rose like you" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
