BrendanB Lyr Req: Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier (15) RE: Lyr Req: Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier 06 May 13

There she sits on buttermilk hill
Who can blame her crying her fill
Every tear could turn a mill
Johnny has gone for a soldier

My o my how she loved him so
It broke her heart just to see him go
Only time may heal her woe
Johnny has.........

She's sold her rod and she's sold her reel
She's sold her only spinning wheel
To buy her love a sword of steel
Johnny has.........

She'll dye her dress and she'll dye it red
And in the street she'll go begging for bread
The one she loves from her is fled
Johnny has.......

As this in in the third person it can be sung by male or female.
