The Lyrics Are Below

English Civil War

(Traditional; Arranged by Strummer/Jones)

 

WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME AGAIN

HE'S COMING BY BUS OR UNDERGROUND

A WOMAN'S EYE WILL SHED A TEAR

TO SEE HIS FACE SO BEATEN IN FEAR

AN' IT WAS JUST AROUND THE CORNER IN THE ENGLISH CIVIL WAR

 

IT WAS STILL AT THE STAGE OF CLUBS AND FISTS

WHEN THAT WELL-KNOWN FACE GOT BEATEN TO BITS

YOUR FACE WAS BLUE IN THE LIGHT OF THE SCREEN

AS WE WATCHED THE SPEECH OF AN ANIMAL SCREAM

THE NEW PARTY ARMY WAS MARCHING RIGHT OVER OUR HEADS

 

ALRIGHT

 

THERE YOU ARE, HA HA, I TOLD YOU SO

SAYS EVERYBODY THAT WE KNOW

BUT WHO HID A RADIO UNDER THE STAIRS

AN' WHO GOT CAUGHT OUT ON THEIR UNAWARES?

WHEN THAT NEW PARTY ARMY CAME MARCHING RIGHT UP THE STAIRS

 

WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME AGAIN

NOBODY UNDERSTANDS IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN

THE SUN IS SHINING AN' THE KIDS ARE SHOUTING LOUD

BUT YOU GOTTA KNOW IT'S SHINING THROUGH A CRACK IN THE CLOUD

AND THE SHADOWS KEEP FALLING WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME
