Soldier’s Joy

Soldier’s Joy (What is a soldier’s joy? It could be his “pay day,” another name for this song from Civil War times.)

I love somebody, yes I do (3x)
I love somebody but I won’t say who.

Grasshopper sitting on a sweet potato vine (3x)
Along come a chicken and said “You’re mine!”

25 cents for the morphine
15 cents for the beer
25 cents for the morphine
To take me out of here.

I am my father’s pride and joy (3x)
Sing another round of “Soldier’s Joy.”
