Soldier's Joy - staff notation

http://www.fieldrecorder.com/assets/notes_images/SoldiersJoy_Meyers.jpg

See my version of "Soldier's Joy' (PDF)


Love somebody, yes I do (x3)
Love somebody and it may be you.

Twice 16's 32 (x3)
Sally, won't you have me, do, gal, do.

Dance all night and fiddle all day (x3)
That's the soldier's joy they say.

Sun comes up and the moon goes down (x3)
See my little Sally in her morning gown,

Twice 16's 32 (x3)
Sally, won't you have me, do, gal, do.

Dance all night and fiddle all day (x3)
That's the soldier's joy they say.

If somebody comes and finds me gone (x3)
They better leave my girl alone

Twice 16's 32 (x3)
Sally, won't you have me, do, gal, do.

Dance all night and fiddle all day (x3)
That's the soldier's joy they say.
Second set of lyrics-

Grasshopper sitting on a sweet potate vine
Grasshopper sitting on a sweet potate vine
Grasshopper sitting on a sweet potate vine
Along comes a chicken and says you're mine

I'm a gonna get a drink don't you want to go ?
I'm a gonna get a drink don't you want to go ?
I'm a gonna get a drink don't you want to go ?
All for soldier's joy

Well it's twenty-five cents for the morphine
Fifteen cents for the beer
Twenty-five cnets for the morphine
Gonna take me away from here

I am my momma's darling boy
I am my momma's darling boy
I am my momma's darling boy
Singing 'bout soldier's joy
