"The Cruel War" (karaoke)

"The Cruel War" (sheet music)


The cruel war is raging;

Johnny has to fight.

I want to be with him

From morning to night.

I want to be with him;

It grieves my heart so.

Won't you let me go with you?

No, my love, no.

 

Tomorrow is Sunday;

Monday is the day

That your captain will call you,

And you must obey.

Your captain will call you;

It grieves my heart so.

Won't you let me go with you?

No, my love, no.

 

I'll tie back my hair;

Men's clothing I'll put on.

I'll pass as your comrade,

As we march along.

I'll pass as your comrade;

No one will ever know.

Won't you let me go with you?

No, my love, no.

 

Oh, Johnny, oh, Johnny,

I fear you are unkind.

I love you far better

Than all of mankind.

I love you far better

Than words can e'er express.

Won't you let me go with you?

Yes, my love, yes.

 

Yes, my love, yes.
