Description

Em bm7
When goin the road to sweet Athay, hurroo, hurroo
Em C G Bm
When goin the road to sweet Athay, hurroo hurroo
Em em7 A am
When goin the road to sweet Athay,
Em B7
A stick in my hand and a drop in my eye,
Em am em B7
A doleful damsel I heard cry:
C am em
(faith) Johnny I hardly knew ye!

With your guns an’ drums an drums an’guns, hurroo hurroo
With your guns an’ drums an drums an’ guns, hurroo hurroo
With your guns an’ drums an drums an’ guns,
The enemy nearly slew you
O darling dear you look so queer
(faith) Johnny I hardly knew ye!

Where are the eyes that looked so mild, hurroo, hurroo
Where are the eyes that looked so mild, hurroo, hurroo
Where are the eyes that looked so mild
When my heart you first beguiled
Why’d you (go) from me an’ child
(faith) Johnny I hardly knew ye!

Where are the legs with which you run, hurroo, hurroo
Where are the legs with which you run, hurroo, hurroo
Where are the legs with which you run,
When you went for to carry a gun
Indeed your dancing days are done
(faith) Johnny I hardly knew ye!

I’m happy for to see you home, hurroo, hurroo
I’m happy for to see you home, hurroo, hurroo
I’m happy for to see you home,
From the islands of Ceylon
So low in flesh so high in bone
(faith) Johnny I hardly knew ye

Nick:
The song is traditional. I didn't write the lyrics, I'm afraid but thank you for the kind words. Most of the songs I do are one or two hundred years old. I play solo and am occasionally joined by one or two others for special events.
Cheers!
Jim
