Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		

  
  
Intro: C Bm C G Bm C G Em G C D  Em 
  
          Bm      C          G 
There she sits on Buttermilk Hill 
    Bm                  C          G 
Oh, who could blame her crying her fill 
      Em         G      C 
Every tear would turn a mill 
           D          Em      C  D  Em 
Johnny has gone for a soldier 
  
  
      Bm     C         G 
Me-oh-my she loved him so 
   Bm                      C       G 
It broke her heart just to see him go 
     Em        G        C 
Only time will heal her woe 
           D          Em      
Johnny has gone for a soldier 
  
  
Instrumental: C  Bm C  G  Bm  C  G  Em  G  C  D  Em 
  
  
N.C. Em       Bm          C        G 
She  sold her rod and she sold her reel 
    Bm            C        G 
She sold her only spinning wheel 
   Em      G               C 
To buy her love a sword of steel 
           D          Em       
Johnny has gone for a soldier 
  
  
               Bm            C      G 
She'll dye her dress, she'll dye it red 
    Bm                C           G 
And in the streets go begging for bread 
    Em      G                   C 
The one she loves, from her has fled 
           D          Em      
Johnny has gone for a soldier  
  
  
OUTRO:  Bm  C  G  Bm  C  G  Em  G  C 
  
           D          Em 
Johnny has gone for a soldier
