        Em                                           D
While on the road to sweet Athy, Ha-roo Har-oo
         Em                                            G           B7
While on the road to sweet Athy, Har-oo Harr-oo
         Em                   D
When on the road to sweet Athy
   C                             B7
A stick in the hand, A drop in the eye
   Em       D         C          B7
A doleful damsel I heard cry
Em         D        Em
Johnny I hardly knew ya

Chorus

Em                                                                                D
With your drums and guns and guns and drums, ha-roo, ha-roo
Em                                                                                G          B7
With your drums and guns and guns and drums, ha-roo, ha-roo
                Em                            D                              C               B7
With your drums and guns and guns and drums, the enemy nearly slew ya;
     Em        D             C           B7
Me Darling dear, you look so queer.  
Em         D        Em
Johnny I hardly knew ya

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Em                                                                 D
Where are the eyes that looked so mild ha-roo, ha-roo
Em                                                                 G          B7
Where are the eyes that looked so mild ha-roo, ha-roo
           Em                     D                                C                          B7
Where are the eyes that looked so mild, When my poor heart you first beguiled
        Em       D            C                 B7
Why did you run from me and the child, 
Em         D        Em
Johnny I hardly knew ya.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chorus

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Em                                                                D
Where are the legs with which you ran, ha-roo, ha-roo,
Em                                                                G           B7
Where are the legs with which you ran, ha-roo, ha-roo,
          Em                       D                              C                        B7
Where are the legs with which you ran, When first you went to carry a gun?
   Em            D          C            B7
Indeed your dancing days are done.
Em          D        Em
Johnny, I hardly knew ya.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chorus

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Em                                                        D
It grieved my heart to see you sail ha-roo, ha-roo
Em                                                G           B7
It grieved my heart to see you sail ha-roo, ha-roo
   Em                          D                               C                           B7
It grieved my heart to see you sail, Though from my heart you took leg-bail
          Em             D                C             B7
Like a cod you’re doubled up head and tail,
Em         D        Em
Johnny I hardly knew ya

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chorus

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Em                                                       D
You haven’t an arm, you haven’t a leg, ha-roo, ha-roo,
       Em                                                         G           B7
You haven’t an arm, you haven’t a leg, ha-roo, ha-roo,
       Em                           D                                  C                    B7
You haven’t an arm, you haven’t a leg, You’re an eyeless, noseless, chickenless egg,
          Em            D              C           B7
You’ll have to be put with a bowl to beg.
Em          D        Em
Johnny, I hardly knew ya.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chorus
Em                                                   D
I’m happy for to see you home ha-roo, ha-roo
Em                                                    G          B7
I’m happy for to see you home ha-roo, ha-roo
      Em                            D                      C            B7
I’m happy for to see you home From the island of Ceylon
     Em            D          C               B7
So low in the flesh so high in the bone,
Em       D        Em
Jonny I hardly knew ya.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chorus

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Em                                              D
How sad it is to see you so, ha-roo, ha-roo,
Em                                               G          B7
How sad it is to see you so, ha-roo, ha-roo,
        Em            D                       C                                    B7
How sad it is to see you so, And I think of you now as an object of woe,
              Em         D                  C             B7
But your Peggy’ll still keep you on as her beau.
Em          D        Em
Johnny, I hardly knew ya.

Chorus

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Em                                                          D
They’re rolling out the guns again, ha-roo, ha-roo,
Em                                                          G          B7
They’re rolling out the guns again, ha-roo, ha-roo,
             Em                  D                             C                           B7
They’re rolling out the guns again, But they never will take our sons again
             Em          D            C      B7
No they never will take our sons again
Em             D            Em
Johnny I’m swearing to ya.
