Anti-war song Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya

The Civil War song When Johnny Comes marching Home Again was based upon the Irish song "Johnny I Hardly Kene Ya"

Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya- Tommy Maken & The Clancy Brothers

and a different full throttle version
Toby Johnstons - Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya!
TobyJohnston -2008

Compare this version of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home"

and so it goes,
