Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya

Click Here for guitar tabs.

While going the road to sweet Athy, A-roo, Ha-roo.
While going the road to sweet Athy, A-roo, Ha-roo.
While going the road to sweet Athy a stick in me hand and a tear in me eye.
A doleful damsel I did spy, Johnny I hardly knew ya.

With yer drums and guns and guns and drums, the enemy nearly slew ya.
Me darling dear you look so queer, Johnny I hardly knew ya.

Where are the legs with which you ran, A-roo, Ha-roo
Where are the legs with which you ran, A-roo, Ha-roo
Where are the legs with which you ran, when first you went to carry a gun
Indeed your dancing days are done, Johnny I hardly knew ya.

With yer drums and guns and guns and drums, the enemy nearly slew ya.
Me darling dear you look so queer, Johnny I hardly knew ya.

You haven't and arm, you haven't a leg, A-roo, Ha-roo
You haven't and arm, you haven't a leg, A-roo, Ha-roo
You haven't and arm, you haven't a leg, you're an eyeless, noseless, chickenless egg.
You'll have to be put in a bowl to beg, Johnny I hardly knew ya.

With yer drums and guns and guns and drums, the enemy nearly slew ya.
Me darling dear you look so queer, Johnny I hardly knew ya.

How sad it is to seee you so, A-roo, Ha-roo.
How sad it is to seee you so, A-roo, Ha-roo.
How sad it is to seee you so, And I think of you now as an object of woe.
But Peggy'll still keep you on as her beau. Johnny I hardly knew ya.

With yer drums and guns and guns and drums, the enemy nearly slew ya.
Me darling dear you look so queer, Johnny I hardly knew ya.
