SONG

REFRAIN: SHULE, SHULE, SHULE A ROO
SHULE A RACK SHACK A BAR BAACOO
WHEN I SAW MY SALLY BABY BEAL,
COME BIBBLE IN THE BOO SHY COREY.

VERSE: HERE I SIT ON BUTTERMILK HILL,
WHO COULD BLAME ME CRY MY FILL
EVERY TEAR WOULD TURN A MILL
JOHNNY'S GONE FOR A SOLDIER.
REFRAIN:

VERSE: OH, MY BABY, OH, MY DOVE,
GONE THE RAINBOW, GONE THE DOVE,
YOUR FATHER WAS MY ONLY LOVE.
JOHNNY'S GONE FOR A SOLDIER.

REFRAIN:
VERSE: I SOLD MY FLAX, I SOLD MY WHEEL,
TO BUY MY LOVE A SWORD OF STEEL,
SO IN BATTLE HE MIGHT WIELD,
JOHNNY'S GONE FOR A SOLDIER.
REFRAIN:
