I'm an American, boys, I've come a long way
I was born and bred in the USA
So listen up close, I've got something to say
Boys, I'm buying this roundWell it took a little while, but we're in this fight
Ain't going home 'til we've done what's right
We're gonna drink Camden Town dry tonight
If I have to spend my last poundWhen I first got to London it was pourin' down rain
Met a little girl in the field canteen
Painted her name on the nose of my plane
Six more missions, I'm goneWell I asked if I could stay and she said that I might
Then the warden came around yelling "shut out the lights"
Death rainin' out of the London night
We made love 'til dawnBut when Johnny come lately comes marching home
His chest full of medals and a G.I. loan
They'll be waitin' at the station down in San Antone
When Johnny comes marching homeMy P-47 is a pretty good ship
And she took a round comin' cross the Channel last trip
I was thinkin' 'bout my baby and letting her rip
Always got me through so farWell they can ship me all over this great big world
I've never find nothing like my North End girl
I'm taking her home with me one day, sir
Soon as we win this warBut when Johnny come lately comes marching home
Chest full of medals and a G.I. loan
They'll be waitin' at the station down in San Antone
When Johnny comes marching home, JohnnyNow my grandaddy sang this song
Told me about London when the Blitz was on
How he married grandma and brought her back home
A hero throughout his landNow I'm standing on a runway in San Diego
A couple Purple Hearts and move a little slow
There's nobody here, maybe nobody knows
About a place called VietnamBut when Johnny Come Lately comes marching home
With a chest full of medals and a G.I. loan
They'll be waitin' at the station down in San Antone
When Johnny comes marching homeNow when Johnny come lately comes marching home
Chest full of medals and a G.I. loan
They'll be waitin' at the station down in San Antone
When Johnny comes marching home, Johnny
