axlslash Posted March 8, 2007 Share Posted March 8, 2007 This is the first draft of a song that I wrote durring Econ and band today, only minor revisions so far. Please do let me know what you think.Here comes Johnny, he comes marchin' homeBack from that great unknownOn the ground he has run, in the choppers he has flownAnd now Johnny comes marching homeThe plane touches down in the dead of nightHe'll be behind closed doors before daylightNo fanfare will he hear, deaf'ning silence on his earWhen Johnny comes marching homeThe doctor said Johnny would be just fineAll he needed was a little rest and timeThen he sent him on his way, "It's so great" the shout and say"To see Johnny come marching home"And that's the last we'll ever seeOf Johnny, hero of the freeIn battle we did support him, or so we did purportUntil Johnny came marching homeAnd there were no grand paradesFor Johnny or the men that he did saveNo great signs of respect, but that's what we've come to expectWhen we see folks like Johnny march on homeThe politicians will draft a billJohnny's perscriptions for to fullAnd as they debate and yell, there'll be more batallions fellAnd 50 more Johnnys marching home[No Johnny is not the only oneInjured by the rebel gunsThough treatment he can't afford, he waits with bated breath for the wordTo send his brothers and sisters marching home]<--I'm not too sure whether or not I like this verse.
