Cruel War - Lyrics

The cruel war is raging
Johnny has to fight
I want to be with him
From morning till 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
When 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
And I'll close as your buddy
As we march along
I'll close as your buddy
No-one will ever know
Won't you let me go with you?
No, my love, no

Johnny, oh, Johnny
You left me so alone
Since your life is over
I've none of my own
I do not love you less
Won't you send for me Johnny?

Writer(s): PETER YARROW, PAUL STOOKEY
