    Wikipedia EN John Brown’s Body

    «John Brown’s Body» (originally known as «John Brown’s Song«) is an American marching song about the abolitionist John Brown. The song was popular in the Union during the American Civil War. The tune arose out of the folk hymn tradition of the American camp meeting movement of the 19th century. The song’s authorship is disputed; one account first published in 1890 claims the lyrics were a collective effort by Union soldiers and that the lyrics also referred humorously to Sergeant John Brown of the Second Battalion, Boston Light Infantry Volunteer Militia. The songwriter and Union soldier Thomas Brigham Bishop is also credited with the song…

    John Brown’s body lies a-mouldering in the grave; (3X)
    His soul’s marching on!


    Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah!
    Glory, glory, hallelujah! his soul’s marching on!

    He’s gone to be a soldier in the army of the Lord! (3X)
    His soul’s marching on!


    John Brown’s knapsack is strapped upon his back! (3X)
    His soul’s marching on!


    His pet lambs will meet him on the way; (3X)
    They go marching on!


    They will hang Jeff Davis to a sour apple tree! (3X)
    As they march along!


    Now, three rousing cheers for the Union; (3X)
    As we are marching on!

    Wikipedia EN When Johnny Comes Marching Home

    The Irish antiwar song «Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye« and «When Johnny Comes Marching Home» share the same melodic material. Based on internal textual references, «Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye» apparently dates from the early 1820s, while «When Johnny Comes Marching Home» was first published in 1863. It was sung by both sides of the American Civil War.[1] It was used as a motivation song that told the soldiers what happens when the war is over.

    As with much folk music of this period, many variants in text and music appear as the song is transmitted orally and subject to many external influences. Primacy of one version over another is difficult to prove conclusively because most versions were never written down or published. James Fuld in The Book of World Famous Music (p. 640) indicates that some believe the melody is not Irish in origin…

    When Johnny comes marching home again

    Hurrah! Hurrah!

    We’ll give him a hearty welcome then

    Hurrah! Hurrah!

    The men will cheer and the boys will shout
    The ladies they will all turn out

    And we’ll all feel gay

    When Johnny comes marching home.

    The old church bell will peal with joy

    Hurrah! Hurrah!

    To welcome home our darling boy,

    Hurrah! Hurrah!

    The village lads and lassies say
    With roses they will strew the way,

    And we’ll all feel gay

    When Johnny comes marching home.

    Get ready for the Jubilee,

    Hurrah! Hurrah!

    We’ll give the hero three times three,

    Hurrah! Hurrah!

    The laurel wreath is ready now
    To place upon his loyal brow

    And we’ll all feel gay

    When Johnny comes marching home.

    Let love and friendship on that day,

    Hurrah, hurrah!

    Their choicest pleasures then display,

    Hurrah, hurrah!

    And let each one perform some part,
    To fill with joy the warrior’s heart,

    And we’ll all feel gay

    When Johnny comes marching home.

    Smithsonian Folkways Classic Labor Songs from Smithsonian Folkways

    Songs of the American labor movement over the 20th century called for just wages, dignity, and a fair shake. They voiced grievances, affirmed the value of the worker to society, and expressed hope for life in a more just world. Classic Labor Songs from Smithsonian Folkways is a collage of these voices—champions of the movement, singing songs with a passion and love for their fellow workers that rings just as true today as it did then. Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Joe Glazer, the Almanac Singers, and more chronicle the history of the American labor movement in stirring song…
