Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Cruel War, The


The cruel war is raging, and 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

I'll go to your captain, get down on my knee
Ten thousand gold guineas I'd give for your release
Ten thousand gold guineas, it grieves my heart so
Won't you let me go with you? No love no

Tomorrow is Sunday, Monday is the day
That 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, man's clothing I'll put on
I'll pass as your comrade as we march along
I'll pass as your comrade, no one will ever know
Won't you let me go with you? No love no
