Actually, I found the lyrics in DigiTrad under "Buttermilk Hill".

I am now seeking the music; chords and such.

Any help?

I was looking for the same thing this morning. Try this web-site for the tune, although it does not have the chords.

JOHNNY HAS GONE FOR A SOLDIER
From Folk Songs of North America
Alan Lomax, p. 47

O Johnny dear has gone away,
He has gone afar across the bay.
O my heart is sad and weary today,
Johnny has gone for a soldier.

CHORUS:
Shule, shule, shule agrah,
Time can only heal my woe,
Since the lad of my heart from me did go,
O Johnny has gone for a soldier.

I'll dye my dress, I'll dye it red,
And through the streets I'll beg my bread,
And through the streets I'll beg my bread,
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
(Chorus)

I'll sell my clock, I'll sell my reel,
I'll sell my flax and spinning wheel,
To buy my love a sword of steel,
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
(Chorus)

Me oh my, I love him so,
Broke my heart to see him go,
Only time can heal my woe,
Johnny has gone for a soldier.
(Chorus)

Lomax variation of 2d verse:
I'll dye my petticoat, yes, dye it red,
And through the world I'll beg my bread,
Until my people will wish me dead,
Is do bhillidh tu a muirnin slan.
(May you return safe, my love.)

Here's my Dad's version based loosley (Ithink) on Peter Paul and Mary's Gone the Rainbow:


Shule, shule shulearoo
Bm    F#7   Bm
Shule a rak shak shule a bab ba coo
D       F#m      Bm
When I saw my Sally Babby Beal com bibble in the boo shy lorey
D      F#m    G          Bm       F#m          F#7    Bm



Here I sit on Buttermilk Hill
Bm    A      G          Bm
Who could blame me cry my fill
D         F#m      Bm
Every tear could turn a mill
D    F#m         Bm    G
Johnny's gone for a soldier
Bm       F#m       Bm

Chorus

Sold my flax, sold my wheel
For to buy a swrod of steel
so it in battle he could wield
Johhny's gone for a soldier

Chorus

Oh my baby, oh my love
gone the rainbow, gone the dove
your father was my only love
now he's gone for a soldier

Chorus



TIA
