Can Anyone Help with a Song about a Soldier Coming Back from War?
September 17th, 2007
My Dad came from outside Naples. He used to sing a song about a soldier that came back from the war and his girlfriend did not recognize him. Dad came to USA around 1916.
Any ideas of what this song is?
If anyone knows this song, please comment below or email me. Thanks!

I think this song is called “Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye”…. and Irish Folk Song…. the version i have is arranged for chorus by Alice Parker.

there was a soldier
a Scottish soldier
who wandered far away
and soldiered far away
there was none bolder
with good broad shoulder
who fought in many a fray
and fought and won
his heart is dying
his heart is crying
