  The Home of Bob Dylan, Minneapolis MN – September 1960  

With your guns and your drums and your guns and your drums, hurroo, hurroo.
With your drums and your guns and your drums and your guns, hurroo, hurroo.
With your drums and your guns and your drums and your guns
The enemy nearly slew you
Oh darling dear, you look so queer
[ Johnny, I hardly knew you.]

You haven't an arm, you haven't a leg, hurroo, hurroo
You haven't an arm, you haven't a leg, hurroo, hurroo
You haven't an arm, you haven't a leg
You're an armless, boneless, chickenless egg
We'll have to put with a bowl to beg
Johnny I hardly knew you.

Where are your eyes that looked so mild, hurroo hurroo
Where are your eyes that looked so mild, hurroo hurroo
Where are your eyes that looked so mild?
When you first my heart beguiled
Why did you run from me and the child
Johnny, I hardly knew you.

Where are your legs that used to run, hurroo hurroo
Where are your legs that used to run, hurroo hurroo
Where are your legs that used to run
When you went for to carry a gun
Indeed your dancin' days are done
Johnny I hardly knew you.

Where is your face that looked so bright, hurroo, hurroo
Where is your face that looked so bright, hurroo, hurroo
Where is your face that looked so brave
[......]
[......] at night
Oh darling dear you're out of sight
Johnny I hardly knew you.


They're rollin' out the guns again, hurroo, hurroo
They're rollin' out the guns again, hurroo, hurroo
They're rollin' out the guns again
But they never will take our sons again
No they never will take our sons again
Johnny I'm swearing to you.  up
