Does anyone know this song, or part of it. I need to know whether it exists or whether it is just in my head. It may be a playground song.

I've looked in the digitrad under Johnnie, soldier, but it didn't come up.

Hope someone knows. Thanks.

Deni

BUTTERMILK HILL

Here I sit on Buttermilk Hill Who can blame me, cryin' my fill And ev'ry tear would turn a mill, Johnny has gone for a soldier.

Me, oh my, I loved him so, Broke my heart to see him go, And only time will heal my woe, Johnny has gone for a soldier.

I'll sell my rod, I'll sell my reel, Likewise I'll sell my spinning wheel, And buy my love a sword of steel, Johnny has gone for a soldier.

I'll dye my dress, I'll dye it red, And through the streets I'll beg for bread, For the lad that I love from me has fled, Johnny has gone for a soldier.

Recorded by Ives et. al. @America @parting @soldier filename[ SHULARN4 Tune file : SHULARN4

Karen Casey sings a fine version of it. I think it's on her first album
