When Johnny Comes Marching Home


The original lyrics as written by Gilmore,
When Johnny comes marching home again
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer and the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.
The old church bell will peal with joy
Hurrah! Hurrah!
To welcome home our darling boy,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The village lads and lassies say
With roses they will strew the way,And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.
Get ready for the Jubilee,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.
Let love and friendship on that day,
Hurrah, hurrah!
Their choicest pleasures then display,
Hurrah, hurrah!
And let each one perform some part,
To fill with joy the warrior's heart,
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.

What happens when Johnny comes home and then marches on the American people? Will Johnny hold a gun to the head of his fellow brother and sister, or will Johnny remember for whom the fight was fought?
To George H.W. Bush – John F Kennedy is awaiting your arrival in Hell. He is flanked by Robert and Martin. All three will watch as you enter the inferno and God locks the gates for all eternity.

Listen to this amended version. The ending is worth listening to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4odR8qh8Cj4

Thank, you,
