“When Johnny Comes Marching Home”

Save This Word!

A popular song from the American Civil War. The first stanza is:

When Johnny comes marching home again, hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then, hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer, the boys will shout,
The ladies, they will all turn out,
And we'll all feel gay, when Johnny comes marching home.
